This spring I will finish my M.Mus. at McGill University in harp performance. My current musical energies are focused on a concerto that I've written for harp and small ensemble that I will be performing on my final recital. Next year I plan to pursue further education in composition and/or music theory pedagogy. 

I loved my time in Chestertown, and I hope to be back at National Music Festival soon!
