Composer Residency at ArtSpring with the Emily Carr String Quartet

I am excited to be joining the Emily Carr String Quartet (ECSQ) on Salt Spring Island for a short residency position, during which I will be composing a string quartet commissioned for the ECSQ. The residency culminates with an informal presentation of the work-in-progress, featuring the Emily Carr Quartet, and myself. Read more about the event here

And here is the wonderful Emily Carr Quartet in action. Needless to say, I very much look forward to hearing them perform my piece.
