Bloom is a musical exploration of the concept that the most courageous of flowers is the one which blooms in the snow -- against all odds, and despite adversity. At the work's core is one of the most common chord progressions found in pop music (I - V - vi - IV), with melodic fragments that represent themes such as unity, growth, and perseverance.

This work was commissioned by the Toronto Montessori School Modern Music Ensemble, directed by Rachel MacDonald. 

Recording coming soon!
