Starting my instrumental career as a percussionist/timpanist, I developed a sympathy for performers on “outside” instruments and in unusual or specialized ensembles–one might call them underserved populations. Here are links to works I have created for such forces, for which serious repertoire is scarce; many have proved to fill a real need. Plus my sacred choral works, and my choral novelties.
