Thank you to John Lunn for his help and advice with getting this site up and running. Without his gentle encouragement and good advice I would still be mulling it over.

*Pianist Matthew Odell and I are very excited to be releasing with Centaur Records Sonatas for Flute and Piano by the acclaimed NYC composer, flutist and teacher Gary Schocker.
These wonderfully conceived and truly collaborative works are filled with wit, charm, beautiful lines, and virtuosic passages for both instruments. Gary Schocker, one of America’s most important and unique compositional voices, truly captures the best of both instruments and the colors they are capable of producing in these diverse and dialogue-filled chamber sonatas.
This upcoming year I am thrilled and fortunate to have upcoming performances with many friends and colleagues filled with great music and at great locations. Please check out my Performances page for dates, places and musical selections.
Matthew and I are especially looking forward to performing in Paris this winter, at Accueil Musical on February 29, 2020, and to working with award winning composer Michel Merlet while in France.
*Acacia Chamber Music, an unusual spin on the traditional piano trio with Meghan Davis, clarinet, and Matthew Odell, piano, is delighted to be performing again at Plymouth State University on Sunday, September 15 at 4 p.m. Music of Maurice Emmanuel, Michel Merlet, Clara Schumann, Melinda Wagner, Eric Ewazen, and Jennifer Higdon.
As the co-founding members of Acacia, we always have a lot fun together, and delight in sharing the rich and mostly newly composed repertory for our combinations of duos and trios. And we hope to pursue some commissioning for our combination in the future.
