My Story

"It's time to stop missing him and start remembering him."

That's what my uncle told me on the day my grandfather passed after a long battle with Alzheimer's Disease.  Those words soon inspired my Second Symphony for Concert Band. My Grandfather was one of the first people who brought a love of music into my life. My Grandparents took me to the New York Philharmonic and the Metropolitan Opera, we listened to classical together in the car, we played duets on the piano, and they were at most every concert, recital, and parade.  I knew the best way to remember him was to bring new music into this world. 

Notes of Remembrance project with five of my talented colleagues. 

For $500, high school and college band ensembles will receive six new works for the spring of 2022 (pending COVID-19 safety). 20% of every commission we receive we will be donating to The Alzheimer's Association as part of our own The Longest Day project to help find a cure and look forward to a world without Alzheimer's. 

We hope to provide more musicians with a chance to learn more about this disease and those it affects, and for many, a way to honor someone they may have lost through inspiring new music.

If you are a band director, a school board member, or you have a connection to a high school, college, or community band go to to sign up today and together, we can help end Alzheimer's.
