Rocking Chair

The Rocking Chair Series involves commissions of solo piano works to be presented alongside an interview with the composer. This is done in an effort to create an inviting atmosphere for the audience as they listen to a wide variety of musical styles and expose them to the ideas that composers think about while writing.

I am currently in the process of planning the fourth concert out to be premiered on September 16, 2017 at 2 p.m.
Featured composers will be:
Luis Fernando Amaya
Jesse Diener-Bennett
Elliott Lupp
Kelley Sheehan
Nicolas Gutierrez
Olivier Loubieres

Ravenswood Fellowship First United Methodist Church is the location!

I’ve unleashed one set of recordings from the second Rocking Chair, and am in the process of re-recording the first set and recording the third set!
