His passion for wilderness and outdoor pursuits has led to a growing series of works inspired by the national parks of the US. He has had residencies at Rocky Mountain, Glacier, Denali, Glacier Bay, and Gates of the Arctic National Parks, and has written over a dozen park-related pieces that have been premiered in places such as Argentina, Australia, Taiwan, and around the US.
His orchestral works have been programmed by the Boulder Philharmonic, Fairbanks Symphony, the Shreveport Symphony, the Rochester Philharmonic, and the Anchorage Symphony, among others. Lias’s NEA-funded commission for the Boulder Philharmonic, All The Songs That Nature Sing, was premiered in Colorado and subsequently performed at Washington DC’s Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts and by the Rochester Philharmonic Orchestra.
