This year marks this website’s tenth birthday! We’ve had a great 2018 and look forward to an even better 2019, filled with great music and people. If you’d like to see a few highlights from 2018, there is a new photo gallery that will take you on a short tour through the year.

Thank you for your continued support!

As the end of a busy semester comes to a close, I hope you’ll join us for the Mannes Orchestra’s last performance before the break! We’ve prepared a program of Dvorak and Beethoven, and can’t wait to share it with you. The orchestra is sounding great; this hour long program will surely provide a nice bit of refreshment amidst the holiday rush!

Bryan leads the Mannes Orchestra in a concert featuring Beethoven’s Egmont Overture and Dvořák’s Symphony No. 6 in D Major.

Next week, I’m looking forward to heading up north to visit Interlochen! It’s always fun to return to such a special place, seeing friends and enjoying the gorgeous setting. I’ll be working with the students in Tom Bara’s studio and giving a recital on Sunday, July 8. I hope you’ll join us for a great weekend!

  • Sunday, 8 July 2018, 5:00pm; Dendrinos Chapel and Recital, Interlochen Center for the Arts, Interlochen, MI. Bryan returns to Interlochen to guest teach masterclasses and present a recital on the beautiful Reuter organ in the chapel. Interlochen’s vibrant community and serene wilderness foster meaningful artistic experiences for students and guests, and this recital will be a great addition to your visit to Paradise North. Details are here and a program can be found here.

Summer is a great time to get caught up on all sorts of things, including the website! We’ve made several overdue updates from a cosmetic facelift to new content and coding. You’ve probably noticed the new look of the website, but I’m also excited to share a new biography as I venture more into the conducting world (while keeping up my organ work, of course). Another big update is to the compositions page, which now contains four new pieces written in the last two years. It’s been an exciting year and I’m glad to share some of that work with you here. I hope you enjoy!
