Las Américas en Concierto (LAEC) is thrilled to announce that its Fifth Annual Concert will feature the esteemed and brilliant Vox n Plux ensemble for an evening of compelling music for voice and plucked instruments by composers from the Americas. The concert will take place on May 30, 2017 at 8pm at the Church of Saint Luke in the Fields in New York and will include music from Argentina, Brazil, Canada, Colombia, the United States and Uruguay.

My composition Tres cantos de cuna (Three Lullabies) based on texts written by Charles Ives and his wife, Augusta Ives, will receive its world premiere by Vox n Plux at the Fifth Annual Concert of LAEC.

El Jardin de Tomás will be perform by the pianist Irina Fuchs at her graduation recital at the Universität für Musik und Darstellende Kuns Wien on April 4, 2017.

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.


I am proud to announce the release of several CDs featuring some of my compositions.
