Make a Joyful Noise (2018) was commissioned by Vista Ridge High School Percussion Ensemble for the group’s 2018 PASIC showcase concert. The piece is notated for nine percussionists, one pianist, and a group of clappers unspecified in number.
I became a father in 2018, and my son has opened my mind and heart to so many things. His presence has put things in perspective for me from both a professional and personal standpoint, and he has brought abundant joy to me and my family. Make a Joyful Noise attempts to capture this joy, and is my first composition in this new stage of my life.
