I recently finished composing a piece for percussion ensemble entitled “Embellished.”  This performance is by the Union High School Percussion Ensemble from Camas, WA.  They had a fantastic performance of it at the Washington State Music Festival where they finished in first place.  I couldn’t have been happier with how this piece turned out.  The whole process of brainstorming, sketching, and eventually seeing it come together was thoroughly enjoyable, and I can’t wait to do it again!

Special thanks to Lewis Norfleet, band director at Union, who commissioned me to write this work!
