Thanks to funding from Reach Out Kansas, Inc. (ROKI), Smithyman and Zakoura Chartered and the Zakoura Family Foundation, a new work has been commissioned for soprano Julia Broxholm of Kansas University’s School of Music, and pianist Russell Miller of The Eastman School of Music.

The Soul Fox will premiere on September 22, 2013 at 2:30 p.m. at Kansas University and on October 2, 2013 at 8 pm at Eastman School of Music. Lori will be in attendance for both performances.
