Hello to All,

It has been quite sometime for me to communicate on this site but I thought this would be of interest to many of you. As most of you are aware Christine Merritt passed away recently to be with her creator; however in the words of Father John "Her spirit will live on and come to you". I have set music to St. Francis of Assisi's "Prayer of Peace" which I have dedicated to Christine and it will have it's world premier this Sunday evening. It will be performed by the Master Singers of Battle Creek at the United Methodist Church in Marshall at 7:00PM on Old US 27 off of I94 (near Denny's). I hope you all can attend and join in the joyous memory of a beautiful soul who touched so many lives with her grace and kindness.
If you need additional information please call me at 517.250.7908

Hi All, If you missed The Concert of The Twenty-Four Days of Christmas in Battle Creek and Lansing this past weekend you still can see our final performance at the Untied Methodist Church in Marshall, on old 27 just off of I94, this Sunday at 4:00PM, December 1st, the first day of Advent . The program has received rave reviews and combines the talents of the Rev. Linda Farmer-Lewis whose creation of "A Wreath of Carols" is inserted between each musical selection of mine. This program will prepare your heart and mind for the true meaning of the season. We hope to see you there. PS I will be performing on the amazing 9'4" hand made Falcone Italian grand piano.
Also the Twenty-Four Days of Christmas makes an excellent holiday gift and is available on Cd Baby, ITunes, Amazon or exclusively at Daphne's in Homer. A very happy Holiday to you all.

Hi All, April 30 was Jazz Day and I received a grant from the Herb Albert Foundation to increase awareness of Jazz, our great American Art, at the Homer Community Schools. Band director Scott Mc Meeking and I performed several Jazz pieces for the students and discussed the Art of Jazz improvisation. I challenged the students to google and YouTube 10 of the jazz legends pictured in a handout given to them. Scott played some amazing solos on his trombones and an article will appear in the Homer Index with some photos next week. Enjoy some Jazz tonight!

Hello everyone! I have not been communicative lately due to on going music and business projects. After almost eight months of arranging the music, I just finished two exciting days of recording my "Morning Has Broken" CD on the Post Chase Concert Grand at the Seventh Day Adventist Church in Battle Creek. I hope to be releasing this before Christmas or early in the New Year. I have combined sixteen Hymns with classical themes by Bach, Beethoven, Brahms, Mozart, Ravel, Scarlatti, Teleman, Chopin and Liszt. I have included The Old Rugged Cross (which was written in Albion, MI.), Blessed Assurance, Wonderful Word of Life, A Mighty Fortress is Our God, to name a few. On the business front we are adding a 7,000 Sq. Ft. addition to Trojan Heat Treat and putting in a 5000 pound per hour ISO Thermal Annealing furnace as we see the economy positioning itself for a comeback. We have just received our ISO/TS16949 certification. Thanks for your support and check out my Music Store.

"ask and you shall receive", I have arranged some originals, did an arrangement of Diane's gorgeous "Your Smile," and an exciting (ultra cooking) arrangement of "Zip-A-Dee-Doo-Dah". In additon Diane agreed to peform two compositions for sting quarter that I wrote for Arias CD "The Phoenix," "the Marrying Maiden" and "Ananda. " Yea, thanks Diane.
