American Composers Forum
More than half of the works that I’ve written have been composed since my retirement. My catalog of compositions contains over 300 works, including song cycles, choral works and pieces for orchestra, band, chamber ensembles and solo instruments. My vocal music is text-driven, where the music enhances the meaning of the written word, and my instrumental music strives for accessibility within the context of pantonal techniques.
