Hopefully, this will be the last update in which I say that the Trio for clarinet, bassoon, and piano is still in progress. As of today, the first and third movements are done, and the second movement is well under way (the beginning and ending are done, and I’m figuring out the middle section–I’m just all over the place with this). With any luck, the next time I post an update, it will be to say the piece is finished.
In the past few weeks, I’ve made a tentative start on a series of arrangements for string quartet. I haven’t yet decided if this is going to go anywhere, so for now I’m keeping the details to myself.
For the future, Mark Carlisle, a colleague of mine at ISU, has asked for a choral piece for his chamber choir, the Sycamore Singers. It will be Christmas themed, but beyond that, I haven’t had time to give it much thought.
I also have several unfinished projects that I’d like to get back to. I hope by next month’s update, I’ll be able to report that I’m at work on a few of them.
