September 2019 Newsletter

I can't believe it's already September. The summer has once again flown by, but I am so excited for the adventures up ahead. Today is my first day as a student at New England Conservatory! I am so honored to be a part of this talented and friendly community. It is also my first day in my role as a music theory teaching assistant. So many new beginnings!

I have some more exciting news to share. My composition Survivor's Suite was awarded the Portland Jazz Composers Ensemble Prize by the International Alliance for Women in Music!

Check out the press release here.

Premiere of Survivor's Suite
My composition "Thaynks Again" was a finalist in the Seattle Women's Jazz Orchestra composition contest and will be performed next month in the Earshot Jazz concert. A huge congratulations to my former classmates Seulah Noh and Juen Seok who were the winner and honorable mention of the contest!

I have been working on revamping my blog. I am writing more content including announcements, obscure jazz history, music tips, and more. Check it out and let me know what you think!

Lastly, I have been spending a lot of time expanding my Women in Jazz Directory. The list of musicians includes well over 100 artists now. I also added a section for industry members who are not (at least primarily known as) performers or composers.

There are so many exciting things in the work and I can't wait to share more soon. Happy September!
