CONCERT WORKS BY YEAR

*Early in my composing life, I gave opus numbers to my works.  I stopped this practice in 2000 but left them in this list for nostalgia and archive purposes.

Below I’ve listed my works by year. If you want to check out an instrumentation list then click here.  Please contact me if any of these pieces pique your fancy.  My older pieces (the ones with Opus numbers) I consider mostly exercises now but I’ll update a work or use a bit from one on occasion.
