About me

I am an active composer and organizer of music events. I share a monthly Music as Meditation concert with listeners and fellow musicians and I organize several concerts of new music each year. I use this blog to tell people about my musical endeavors.

Upcoming Performances


Sunday, October 22 4 PM: Mountain Top Music Center's Community Orchestra: Camp Calumet (1090 Ossipee Lake Road, Ossipee, NH)

I love it when my work and my composition overlap. This coming Sunday, my beloved community orchestra will perform the New Hampshire premiere of a new piece called "Summer Suite."  My colleague Leigh-Ashley Milne will play the solo viola part and I will wave the conductor's stick. Also on the program: Rimsky-Korsakov's rousing Procession of the Nobles, and a wide selection of other "dancy" music. We suggest a $10 donation, which will support the work of Mountain Top Music in bringing learning and playing opportunities to musicians young and older. Mountain Top Music's Concert Series

Friday, October 28, Beth's Cafe in Bridgton, Maine. 5-6:30 PM
My friends Amy Berrier, Kate Vachon, and Chris Nourse and I gathered all summer at Amy's "big house" to play chamber music beside an idyllic river in Tamworth. The program includes Schubert for its beauty, Pleyel for its elegance, and some brand new music by Ken Turley for its freshness. Tickets can be had for $10 in advance or $15 at the door. A delicious is dinner is available as well. Call 207-647-5211 to reserve your tickets. Here's a link the cafe's website: Beth's Kitchen Cafe

Friday, November 3 in Conway Village, New Hampshire
The "Big House Chamber Players" share their summer's musical pursuits at Mountain Top Music Center's First Friday Concert 12-1PM. The concert is free, donations will go toward the renovation of Mountain Top Music Center's new home in the Bolduc Block in Conway Village. You can learn more about this concert here: Mountain Top Music's Concert Series

Sunday, November 5 5-6 PM at Christ Episcopal Church 16 Pine Street, North Conway, NH
One of the regular attenders told me recently that this event "is NOT a concert." It is, instead, a chance to listen to music without too much interruption for talking. In November, as in many months this coming year, I'll play two book-ended Beethoven Bagatelles and my own Beethoven-influenced musings. This event is free and open to everybody.

Sunday, January  7, 5-6 PM at Christ Episcopal Church 16 Pine Street, North Conway, NH
Music as Meditation continues on this day. The music is chosen with its connections to human hearts in mind.
