I’m pleased to report that the San Francisco Chamber Orchestra and I will be recipients of a $50,000 Gerbode/Hewlett commissioning grant for composition and production of a song cycle for voice, electronics and orchestra. The full work, tentatively titled “Hunger Strike” and exploring aspects of hunger both literal and figurative, will premiere in spring of 2016 as part of the SFCO’s Main Stage concert series (San Francisco, Berkeley and Palo Alto).
