I just returned from the Christian Fellowship of Art Music Composers conference in Fresno, CA. I gave a presentation on viewing music as a metaphor and the CFAMC Chamber Choir gave a fantastic performance of my piece, You Shall See His Face. I also had the opportunity to hear the wind ensemble of Fresno Pacific University perform under the direction of Erik Leung. I was impressed with the sound of this group!
When I attend conferences I try to get the most of the experience. Knowing I'd be so close to some of the most beautiful places in this country, I made sure to visit both Yosemite and Sequoia National Parks. Amazing beauty!
