Original Compositions (partial list, see CV for full list)

Three Latin Dances for Mixed Choir, Accordion, Piano, Bass and Percussion

Commissioned by the Orpheus Choir, premiered 2013

“I was inspired to create this composition because of my love of Latin music. My many excursions to the Caribbean have given me opportunity to study and learn from local artists and perform with them. When I was composing Tres Bailes Latinos in 2013, I was invited to guest conduct the Villa Clara Symphony Orchestra in Santa Clara Cuba, in a concert of exotic dance music of which several other compositions of mine were programmed. The passionate musical community of Santa Clara will always be a wonderful memory and Cuban music will always be an inspiration to me.”
