recent headshot“Opus in Progressionem” is Latin for “Work in Progress.”  That is a perfect descriptor for my compositional journey.  I strive to keep exploring, learning, and growing with each new work. My “real” gig is conducting and teaching as a Music Professor at Manchester University in North Manchester, Indiana.  But, I spend many evenings and weekends (and definitely summers) composing music.  Several people suggested I start a blog for those interested in my composition work, so I’m giving it a try. Check back here from time to time to see news about completed works, new and ongoing projects, performances and premieres, and just some general thoughts as I continue my creative journey. Feel free to leave comments and/or suggestions.
