Wow, it’s been a while since I’ve posted to the blog! 2016 wrapped up and 2017 kicked in. Before I knew it, here we are in late May. I thought I’d update things with a few highlights from the past months:
May 17 – I returned to the stage with The Dream Unfinished to perform Evan Williams’ Rocksteady for solo alto saxophone.
May 6 – Con Vivo Music performed a Debussy Portrait Concert in Jersey City. I finally got to perform a piece from college: Debussy’s Rapsodie, which was a total blast.
April 20 – New Thread Quartet presented Explorations Vol 2, a collection of (mostly) commissioned works by some incredible composers we’ve been working closely with. It was jam packed hall at DiMenna Center and surely a concert season highlight for NTQ!
March 10 – New Thread Quartet were guest artists at Bridgewater State University’s NASA Region 8 conference. We gave a masterclass on contemporary performance, a panel discussion on managing a chamber group, and performed some of our latest rep.
