Compositions

On Sheet Music Plus, you will find some of my arrangements for ukulele, children’s choir and piano.

Here are some of my instrumental pieces:

An atonal string quartet inspired by Latin American rhythms:

 

An atonal chamber orchestra piece entitled The Little Bird that Fell

 

A tonal string quartet

 

A high school concert band piece

 

Here is my orchestration of an opera composed with Cambridge students in a BLO/NCFO/Cambridge Community Schools project. The children composed lyrics and melodies. I arranged the rest.

 

I compose for the North Cambridge Family Opera Festival Chorus each year. Here are some science-themed songs from past performances:

A piece about the space shuttle re-entry vehicle, lyrics written with my father who worked with NASA in the 1960’s: 

A piece about mirror neurons

A children’s song about my favorite pond and its endangered ecosystem

A lullaby about the wonder of condensation as seen through a child’s eyes

A canon about the northern lights

I am also a songwriter:

A performance featuring Andrea Gillis on pipes, Emily Grogan on sax, and me on piano
