I am deeply passionate about creating meaningful concert experiences that rely on tradition and imagination. My objective as a conductor, composer, and educator is to enrich campus life, the community and create cultural opportunities that connect people through music. The music archives in Special Collections provides me with a plethora of original source material that I take from "shelf to stage." Transforming vintage print music into an active performance library increases the relevance of special collections at an academic research library. FAU Libraries serves as a model of possibilities in the 21st century and I am part of that new tradition.
