For my friends in the Charlotte area… My latest composition, Silence in Forty-Two for baritone and piano will be premiered Sunday, April 12 at 7:00 p.m. The performance is part of the Providence Chamber Music Series at the Providence United Methodist Church, 2810 Providence Rd, Charlotte, NC. 28211. Silence in Forty-Two is a collaboration between me and Dustin M. Hoffman. The text for Silence in Forty-Two is an adaptation of one of Hoffman’s short stories of the same name. The performance will feature Winthrop faculty Jeff McEvoy (baritone) and Tomoko Deguchi (piano). The concert is free and open to the public. Silence in Forty-Two was written for Jeff McEvoy.
