I’m having a remarkable time here in Michigan at the MUSIC NOW ’07 Festival. Anthony Iannacone is a wonderful musician and a real gentleman, and we’ve discovered that we have a lot of mutual acquaintances. First day here (Wednesday), I was treated to two fine pieces by his students, Joshua Bornfield and Whitney Prince, on a program of diverse music, stylistically speaking, including composers Nikola Resanovic, Alberto Ginastera, Steve Reich and Iannacone himself.

Last night was a concert of my chamber music, along with two other student pieces, and tonight is a concert of large ensemble work. I’ll have more detail in the coming days, but I’m squeezing this post in between dinner and the concert, so this is it for now.
