Alaria is happy to announce a return to in-person classes this fall, for fully vaccinated participants.Classes Oct 4-Dec 10. Barring any unseen developments, we will also once again be holding our end of session performances at the National Opera Center in December. For more information, contact Yuri Vodovoz at


We are currently in the planning stages for the upcoming 2021-22 concert season, which will include at least 5-7 concerts of new music by our composer members. However, we have already scheduled two organ concerts (August 12 & September 9) featuring Claudia Dumschat, the fabulous organist at the Little Church Around the Corner.


I'm currently writing a new piece for a 12-piece ensemble featuring my septet, string quartet, and vocalist. The project is entitled Imagined Conversations from a Relived Childhood and explores themes I was or was not taught while growing up.

Noteworthy Sheet Music

Renowned saxophonist Paul Cohen created an exciting transcription of Marion Bauer’s Sonata, Op.22, written originally for viola (or clarinet) and piano. This is a superb, challenging alto saxophone adaptation that will delight advanced players.
