Willie Nelson and Lyle Lovett have been honored as the Official Texas State Musician of the Year in the past, but last year’s honoree was Conspirare founder and artistic director Craig Hella Johnson. There’s a very good reason for that.

finding the air up there – Winner of the 2014 Suzanne and Lee Ettelson Composer’s Award

Wow. I just got word that my work for violin and piano finding the air up there was chosen as one of the two winners of the Suzanne and Lee Ettelson Composer’s Award.

Endowed by Suzanne Ettelson in memory of Lee Ettelson, the Suzanne and Lee Ettelson Composer’s Awards for New Chamber Works by American Composers is nationally recognized as a major opportunity for composers. Its purpose is to honor the best in current American music and to provide composers with a prominent forum for their work.

I now regret exactly zero % of the time I spent putting off work on my dissertation last summer.
