The Nocturnes Project

This project pairs famous paintings of night scenes with a series of original compositions for jazz ensemble and spoken word which take listeners on a journey through the night. This project was presented at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, in Collins Hall in the new Hamel Music Center, on February 9th, 2020 as my 4th DMA recital.
