The composer will have a concert at Zankel Hall in March, with the St. Thomas Choir singing English Renaissance works that have inspired him. He'll also be the featured composer at the New England Conservatory's Preparatory School Contemporary Music Festival in January. He is currently conducting an Einstein on the Beach ballet in Paris.
