On Saturday, April 27th 2019 at 7 PM and on Sunday, April 28th at 3 PM, Steven Klimowski and Sadie Danforth-Brightman performed my work “Mon âme fut à sa merci” in the Historic Hand House in Elizabethtown, NY, USA as part of the Piano by Nature concert series.

On April 7, 2019 at 3 (3:30) PM, I performed a concert in Notre-Dame-de-la-Consolata, Montréal, together with singers Rev. Jean-Pierre Couturier, Marie-Annick Béliveau and Valérie Walker.
Two of my works were on the programme, Salve, Regina, for barytone and organ, and Vocalise 2, for three female singers and ostinato. I also played two organ préludes by Jehan Alain and sung in Walker’s Ave, Maria and Couturier’s La Passione secondo Giovanni.
15 minutes before the beginning of the concert, Jean-Pierre Couturier and I appeared live on Radio Maria together with Rev. Mario Neva to talk about the sacred music projects we are involved in. Radio Maria, a world-wide Catholic radio station, live streams in Italian in Montréal. You can listen to it online HERE (note: it is not 24 hours a day)
The concert was part of the 2019 Italian cultural series, organised and produced by Rev. Neva.
