Lucidity Chamberistas, a Queens-based string ensemble conducted by Eugene Muneyoshi Takahashi, performed Reflexiones for violin, viola, cello and string orchestra on November 17, 2015 at the Secret Theater, The Long Island City Art Center.

The cantata Pedro Páramo, commissioned by Cantori New York, with generous funding provided by the Roger Shapiro Fund, was premiered on May 16, 2015 in New York City with guest artists Peter Tantsits, tenor, Dan Kempson, baritone and Alfonso Díaz, narrator.

The cantata is for tenor/narrator, baritone, mixed choir and four instruments and is based on the remarkable novel Pedro Páramo by the Mexican writer Juan Rulfo.

El Jardin de Tomás was performed by the pianist David Holzman and it received its European and Austrian premiere by the pianist Irina Fuchs at the Universität für Musik und Darstellende Kuns Wien.
