Samba Batutude I @ CMU, April 23rd

Wonderful news! I  recently completed my latest commission to compose a non-major percussion ensemble work, and it will be premiered at Central Michigan University on April 23rd directed by James Gunther. This work is the latest in my collection of Brazilian influenced compositions. Titled “Samba Batutude I,” features brazilian instruments and a mix of sub-samba styles including samba enredo and batucada. It’s a highly rhythmic and groovy jam session featuring a free improvisation section!  I am very excited for this premiere! 🙂
