His large work, An African American Requiem will premiere in 2021 in partnership with Resonance Ensemble and the Oregon Symphony.

Also a professionally trained classical singer (bass), Damien has appeared with the Metropolitan Opera, Seattle Opera, Portland Opera, among other regional countries across the nation.
