The music of The Flock was created while Teddy was the 2016 recipient of the Make Jazz Fellowship in Santa Monica, sponsored by the 18th Street Arts Center and the Herb Alpert Foundation. During a three month composition intensive, Teddy was able to bring his years long dream to life of composing for a small Bulgarian Women's choir and chamber ensemble, and was fortunate to collaborate with world-renowned singer Tzvetanka Verimezova and her UCLA Bulgarian women's choir to bring the music to fruition. 

From Teddy:
Bay Area family!! It would mean so much to me to see you at this concert! This is the first time that I'm presenting a show exclusively of music that I've composed, and I'm so excited and humbled to share it with this community. A lot of time and energy has been put into this album, and I can't wait to put it out into the world and see what happens. 

The Community Music Center is San Francisco's oldest music school, and I am honored to be on faculty there. They also happen to have one the best sounding halls for acoustic music in the bay, as well as one of the best Steinway grand pianos around, so you're in for a treat. 

See you on May 21st!
