Every year the arts critics in Austin come together and give awards for outstanding arts events and performances.  This is called the Austin Critic’s Table Awards.  This year I was a part of several arts events that received awards:

I am lucky to be a company member and composer for the internationally acclaimed theater company Rude Mechs who were inducted into the Austin Arts Hall Of Fame this year.

I love my friend, playwright Kirk Lynn, who wrote an amazing adaptation of Shakespeare’s King John which was directed by Madge Darlington.  It was an all-star cast and crew and that play received two awards:
Best Actor:
Jason Liebrecht, The Lieutenant of Inishmore/Fixing King John
Best Ensemble Performance:
Fixing King John, Rude Mechanicals

I played piano in a touring show by Daniel Alexander Jones and Bobby Halverson which won

Best Touring Show:

My 501c3 with Graham Reynolds, Golden Hornet Project, had our biggest show ever for the opening festivities of Fusebox this year.  We commissioned 8 composers to complete Mozart’s Requiem mass and collaborated with Texas Choral Consort , Convergence Ensemble, KMFA Classical Radio Austin, and Texas Performing Arts to present Mozart’s Requiem Undead which won much acclaim:
