I work with contemporary chamber ensembles in New York City. In the list below, I've included my main ensemble engagements, as well as chamber and solo repertoire that I am enthusiastic about, that help define me and what I do.

PROJECTS:

Diffusion Studies - a series of concerts where I explore music of the spatial variety (often broadly defined,) performed by myself and friends of mine. First concert is coming up on May 14!

I play with many other ensembles on a freelance basis - check my shows page and bio for information about that.
