Veritas Musica is sad to share the news that one of our family, Lowell Greer, has passed away. Beyond the fact that Lowell was a supreme musician (composer/natural horn god/master teacher), he was a mentor to many of us and a huge loving figure for all that knew him. We all share our condolences with his family. The world has lost a giant of a musician and one of the kindest, gentlest, and warmest people ever.

After premiering my new band work, Entropy, with the SCIBA Honor Band last month, I am excited to announce that this work is finally available to the public. All edits and tweaks are done. This is an energetic grade 2 1/2 or 3 work for band. There are lots of fun percussion effects. Some aleatoric moments are balanced with hyper-organized sections of melodic motives that are easy to master all used to portray the title's concept. If anyone is interested in trying this piece out, it is available at www.veritasmusicpublishing.com.

New etude video is up! This year, I would like to record more new etudes by living composers, and I knew I needed to start with this fast favorite by Wayne Lu! “11 More Exigent Etudes for Horn,” which includes this one, is available from Veritas Musica Publishing.
Very excited to be performing with James Naigus on Saturday, October 25th at the MidNorth Regional Horn Workshop at St. Thomas U. in St. Paul, MN on the New Works recital at 4pm! We will play my work, Perigee Ballad, and also James' work, Solstice, that he was kind enough to write for me. Both pieces are for horn and piano. For those of you that do not know James' music, you should really check it out! Genius!
