Symphony World Premier
A new symphony to be premiered by Marshall University

I'm super excited to announce that the Marshall University Symphony Orchestra will be premiering my new symphony, "Four Hymns", this November. Last year I was incredibly humbled when they performed a piece of mine alongside some of the greats of the film composing world, and I was even more humbled when they commissioned a new piece to premier for this year. 

The piece is a four movement symphony with each movement being an ode to those emotions we all endure as we go on this journey called life.

The world premier will take place on November 16th. I can't wait for them to bring this to life!
