Current Projects:

 I. The current repertoire of new music for band lacks pieces that can be performed by an average junior high school band. A grade 3 band piece (junior high level) was commissioned from the emerging composer Kim Archer. The piece was premiered by a Michigan high school band and was published by C. Alan publications.

II. David R. Gillingham composed a piece for choir, soprano and baritone soloists, and wind ensemble after three poems by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow. This piece, entitled "LifeSongs", was premiered at Illinois State University on April 27, 2003 (celebrating the opening of their new performance hall), and was subsequently published to be available for other ensembles.
