December 2017: a very happy and successful workshop of My Breath Your Breath: Dialogue for a Mother and Daughter. This exquisite extended poem, in the form of a conversation between a mother and daughter, was written for me by Lorna Crozier, one of Canada's most gifted poets. Heather Pawsey soprano and Megan Latham mezzo-soprano, with Yawen Wang pianist, sang my score for a small invited audience at Vancouver Opera's rehearsal hall. We will present it for the general public this summer.


March 9 2018: a celebration concert of my music at the Canadian Music Centre BC Region, on Davey Street in Vancouver.
