Blue Dances is a work for wind ensemble dedicated to the beautiful people and island of Puerto Rico. After the devastating hurricane (Maria), I felt a need to give back in some way. My connection to Puerto Rico is deep. I had the privilege of living there for over 9 years as a young boy. When the island suffers, I suffer. When the island celebrates, I celebrate. Composing Blue Dances was an act of love. The piece starts with sounds of the ocean, and a delicate trio between the flute, oboe, and flugelhorn. The Latin melodies throughout the piece represent a positive outlook towards the future of this island. The people of Puerto Rico are resilient, strong, positive, and always loving. These beautiful sentiments are what I hope I was able to have Blue Dances represent.

The Annapolis Fanfare for Wind Ensemble

2019, grade 3.5 $100 PDF (Score and Parts)

The original Annapolis Fanfare was a short fanfare I had the pleasure of writing for the United States Naval Academy Band Trumpets after an exciting collaboration with the brass ensemble, culminating with a concert at the John F. Kennedy Performing Arts Center. I composed the fanfare as a thank you gift to trumpeter Matthew Harriman and his US Naval Academy Band trumpet colleagues.

The Annapolis Fanfare is a playful setting for wind ensemble honoring and paying tribute to all military musicians as a thank you for their service to our country.
