Just finished composing and getting ready to start rehearsing for “The Fisherman and his Wife,” an operetta-type thing for Yocum Institute for Arts Education. After that, I will be composing for the “Traffic Opera,” brainchild of Sue Lange and Andrew Pochan. This will debut online as a video. Then, I will join the Alex Meixner Band for some gigs all over the U.S.
