My concerto for tuba, Episodes and Echoes, has been awarded The 2010 Harvey G. Phillips Awards for Excellence in Composition Award, in the “Tuba in a Solo Role” category.
The concerto was written for Les Neish, and has recently been recorded and released on Les’ award winning CD Salt of the Earth.
I also had works featured on two CD’s that were nominated for 2010 ITEA Roger Bobo Awards. Elegie, performed by Steven Mead and Spanish Brass, was on the CD Brass and Wines – nominated in the “Ensemble” catagory; and Fields of Destruction, commissioned and recorded by Pat Stuckemeyer, was featured on Pat’s CD, Footprints, which was nominated in the “Solo Euphonium” category.
I was also lucky enough for three works to be featured at the conference:
James Gourlay performed Floating Dreams, Jason Ham performed Requiem Paraphrases with the UCLA Brass Choir, conducted by Pat Sheridan, and Dave Thornton performed Elegie with The Flatirons Brass Quintet.
