Music

Collected here are works I have composed for various ensembles. I have included both recordings and links to the sheet music itself, in hopes that some of it might be looked at and played.

Horizon
brass quintet

This quintet won the high school division of the 2011 Student Composers Competition, a national competition in which the winning entries were honored with a performance by the US Army Brass Quintet on Millenium Stage at the Kennedy Center. The title refers to the basic idea of the piece, of looking about oneself to the horizon and, in the passage of time and sky and light, finding inspiration.

Fanfare
brass quintet

Composed for use as a processional by the West Chester East High School Brass Quintet at the National Honor Society induction ceremony, this piece is simple in form but subtly textured with an often organ-like sound and a repeating middle section allowing the piece to run as long as necessary for the inductees to reach their places.
