Two of Brooke’s works for double reeds will be featured at the International Double Reed Society Conference in Appleton, WI this summer, performed by Heather Armstrong.

Brooke’s work for trumpet and electronics, Flash!, was recently performed by virtuoso Keith Benjamin on two programs in Kansas City.

A new work for women’s choir and percussion, In Memoriam Eius, was premiered by the Iowa/Hungary Project in March 2016. They performed with choirs from Luther College and the University of Northern Iowa, and will continue to perform the work on their next European tour.

Brooke taught at the International Music Festival of the Adriatic in Duino, Italy in June 2013, 2014, and 2016. His blog can be found under the “Projects” tab in the menu.

Brooke was on sabbatical from Luther College in Spring 2013. His project was an outdoor sound installation, a collaboration with Harvey Sollberger and a host of advisors. Click on the “Projects” tab in the menu for more information.

Brooke’s CD, “Waves of Stone,” is available on the INNOVA label and on the Naxos listening library. Included on the CD are six chamber music pieces, composed between 1994–2008. The Strike Duo released their first CD, Convergence, on Luminescence Records. The disc includes a recording of Brooke’s sacred trees. A recording by the Luther College String Trio and pianist Miko Kominami was released and features Brooke’s trio Laudate eum in cordis.
