Hello and Happy 2018 to All!
I am thrilled to announce that I have just been commissioned by the world-famous Metropole Orkest, based in the Netherlands, to arrange the John Coltrane version of “My Favorite Things,” for their late January concert! They are one of the greatest orchestras in the world and I’m honored for the opportunity.
My Jazz Mass will have its NYC premiere on Sunday, February 11th at St. Peter’s Church – thank you to Ike Sturm for giving me a chance to have it performed here!
The day after the Mass, The Philippe Lemm Trio will head back to Europe, this time making our debut with two weeks of concerts in Poland. Check out Philippe’s page for all relevant info!
In the acting world, I have recently started narrating for the publishers Recorded Books and Blackstone Audio. All titles can be found on Audible.com!
I’m excited to share that my new piece “The 125th Anniversary Jazz Mass,” commissioned by the Parish of All Saints’ Church and St. George’s Chapel in Rehoboth Beach, DE, will be premiered October 14th and 15th, 2017, at the Rehoboth Beach Jazz Festival. News can be found here. The piece will feature my good friend Andrea Wood on lead vocals, Ethan O’Reilly on bass and Philippe Lemm on drums, and the choirs of both All Saints Church and the Hood College Choir. I’ve been looking forward to this for a long time and hope some of you in the Delaware area can join us!
