In this conversation we talk about her work leading the New Music Committee at the 2016 AGO National Convention in Houston as well as her presentation about the modal music of Tournemire and Hakim which was presented at the convention and published in 2014’s Mystic Modern: The Music, Thought and Legacy of Charles Tournemire, the Op. 19 organ by Martin Pasi, and her newest double CD recording "Bonjour and Willkommen" on Acis Productions.
