Sometimes my name ends up in the papers / online for various music-y things that I've done. 

 
 

"Silk"

On the Air

On May 1st, 2017, Yaz Lancaster of New York University's WNYU 89.1 FM New York broadcasted "Silk" on her radio show "Not Just Clara."  I was really excited to be included in such an incredible lineup- the entire show is dedicated entirely to works by female composers. Thank you Yaz! 

Find the entire broadcast here- the recording of "Silk" begins around 1h 24'. 

Make sure to tune in to "Not Just Clara" all summer on Sundays from noon - 2:00 streaming on WNYU 89.1 FM
