Esprit Orchestra Recording Session

    Earlier this year, I composed a new piece for Esprit Orchestra, "in water suspended" with support from the Ontario Arts Council. This past week I had the chance to rehearse and record it for an exciting upcoming collaboration! It has been almost two years since I heard live music or was even in the same room rehearsing with musicians, so thankful for this opportunity.
