Recent commissions and concerts have included performers/composers such as Todd Reynolds, Andrew Russo, Sarah Cahill, Eve Beglarian, the Common Sense Composers Collective, Pamela Z, Amy X Neuburg, Brad Dutz, Art Jarvinen, Scott Deal, Carolyn Bremer, Bill Ryan, Alan Terricciano, Leslie Hogan, and Ryan Brown in cities across the US.
