I am proud to announce that I have been named as one of the winners of 2019 Bassoon Chamber Music Composition Competition. Dances with Quarks for bassoon and string trio was one of two works chosen to be performed on January 14, 2020 at Lynn Conservatory’s New Music Festival in Boca Raton, Florida. In addition to the performance, Dances with Quarks will be published by Imagine Music in the coming year, which will be my first non-self-published work!

Great news, the latest album by Dr. Jefferson Campbell, Pocket Grooves - New Music for Bassoon, Piano and Percussion, is now available on iTunes and Spotify! My piece Concertino for Bassoon and Electronics is one of the tracks featured on this recording by my life-long friend. I am excited it is now available on these services and I hope everyone will go check it out and purchase it there... or at least stream it thousands of times.

To purchase a physical copy of the CD, go to the MSR Classics website here. To get the record on Spotify or iTunes, either click the previous links or check out my Discography page.

In the next couple weeks a new recording by Dr. Jefferson Campbell will be released that includes my Concertino for Bassoon and Electronics. In addition to my work "Pocket Grooves" contains music by Steven Moellering, Gene Koshinski, and Graeme Shields. It focuses on new music for bassoon. "Pocket Grooves" will be released by MSR Classics and when there is information available I will post it on this site.
