My daughter, Sonja, is presently Senior Director of Operations with the Nashville Symphony, as well as a mother of five year old Ethan, so she is very busy. She is also an accomplished oboist, having received her BM from Eastman School of Music and MM from Rice University in oboe performance. In addition, she is an excellent conductor and has conducted many of my premieres. 

She premiered two of my larger chamber works: Nonet 1 for stings (1999) at Eastman School of Music and Nonet 2 for winds (2004) while at Rice University.

Bach's Brandenburg Concertos' inspired these two chamber works as well as other larger chamber works that I have written.
