WORKS FOR CHAMBER ENSEMBLES
BINDING LIGHT (2019)
For Brass Quintet
Binding Light is this opening filled with shining color and radiant energy. The starting melody from the first trumpet represents this sense of peace followed by the rest of the ensemble. This fanfare is one filled with energy and excitement!
For Flute Quartet
In two movements, this piece represents the confidence in people with the idea of glass. The first movement is Shards, this represents a person looking for themselves through the world. The second movement, Crystal is the culmination of everything; the person knows who they are.
for Glockenspiel and Vibraphone
Based off of the theme of Pure Imagination, this piece represents the idea of an "imaginarium", a place where you store your creativity and freedom in your head. The piece is a duet for Glockenspiel and Vibraphone; creating this impressionistic flight of music.

This recording has become a favorite among fans, as it has various pitch ranges paired with amazing instrumental melodies. I worked incredibly hard on all of the arrangements, and I’m proud to be able to present the fans with this amazing piece. Listen to this recording, as well as many other recordings now.
