Happy 2024, everyone. May it be a year of meaningful musicmaking for all of us.
Just before the end of last year, I got the great news that my piece "Lecha Dodi", a setting of the classic Hebrew poem that compares the Sabbath metaphorically to a beautiful bride, had won the Cincinnati Camerata's 2023 Composition Contest. The Cincinnati Camerata will premiere the piece in their spring concert on Sunday, April 28, at 3 PM in the historic Isaac M. Wise Temple in downtown Cincinnati. I plan to make the trip to attend and I'd love to see you there if you're in the area!
