A Composer's Goodbye to Murray, KY

I have enjoyed the people and the students that I have met here. What an amazing jewel in America's Heartland, with the Athena Festival, Murray State University, the Murray Art Guild, and a thriving arts community.

Tuesday night was my last concert with Murray State University, the New Music Concert. My students presented nine different electronic works, from clarinet and tape to more contemporary electronica. We even had a fun jazz piece or two. I also presented a video version of Movement 1 of my Creation Oratorio, originally performed live by the Millikin University Women's Choir and Millikin University Percussion Ensemble.

Moving will be hard. I am giving a lecture next week Ohio, then returning to Murray to finish packing. Such incredible craziness!

Goodbye, Murray! I will miss you!
