Our society values material and structure, two things that are often elusive to art (especially music). The new administration proposes to eliminate federal funding for the arts (and education, and humanities, and, and....). Where do you stand?

Please consider making a donation to my work. Your support ensures I'm able to sustain my composing life Currently, donations are:

- Paying the hard-working musicians, choreographer, and librettist who are bringing my new opera, lily, to life

- Compensating photographers, videographers, and recording engineers who are documenting lily so it has a long life beyond its initial performance

- Beyond this, donations are being set aside to develop workshops in under-funded schools and community centers so that these communities have access to the arts free-of-charge.
