My time this year at the Gabriela Lena Frank Creative Academy of Music has been extremely fulfilling and productive. Tonight the Del Sol Quartet premieres my new string quartet Comb in San Francisco alongside new works by fellow Cycle 5 composers Aaron Garcia, Anjna Swaminathan, Antonio Celaya, Jonah Gallagher, and Erika Oba. I’m so thankful to work with such amazing musicians and I couldn’t be more excited for this concert.
