So first the bad news, my performance in Tuscan, AZ has been canceled due to the group disbanding. While I am saddened by this I hope that the piece will get performed, even if I have to organize it myself.
Now for the good news: I won third place in the Abundant Silence Composition Competition! I didn't think I had a chance of winning but I was indeed selected as one of the five third place winners. Which I know, doesn't sound like much, but in addition to the $50 cash prize, the piece I submitted, Forest Rituals, will be formally published by Abundant Silence and receive a performance in January 2018 along with a recording. I am beyond excited and honored to have been selected for this amazing opportunity and I cannot wait to potential travel to Colorado for the concert. :)
