I am really looking forward to attending a 5 week composition residency at the Banff Centre, Canada. I am excited to spend time working on some new music at the Leighton Artists' Colony, which is located in a secluded, wooded area on Banff Centre's 43-acre campus. The residency takes place during October and November 2016.
