1ros A concert with one rosette is an excellent program for engaging new audiences.

2ros Two rosette programs present either works of lesser-known composers whose works I particularly admire; or pieces that have been unjustly neglected over the years, and which should be performed more regularly.

3ros Three rosette programs are a deeply considered exploration of a composer, or works composed in response to, or contemporaneous with, significant moments in history.
