Spring is almost here, and there is a lot of activity to go with it.
I have a number of performances coming up, both as composer and performer. On May 19th, Trio Casals will give their CD release concert at Weill Hall at Carnegie Hall. If you've been following my website and Facebook page, you'll know that "Woman A/Part" will be included in that performance. Are you going to be near New York City? I'd love to see you at the concert! Check the "Performances" page for details.
Before New York City, however, is the premiere of "Bound," a piano solo I wrote for the Vision of Sound event. Choreographer Christina D'Amico is working her magic with her dancers, and Sar-Shalom Strong will be the pianist for all three performances in April.
On the performance side of things, Samba Laranja is gearing up for their Spring concert on April 15th. These are always high energy events! And of course, the Central New York Flute Choir is gearing up for their Spring concert as well. Keep an eye on this page for these dates, and other events that are coming up.
On the radio side of the world, Feminine Fusion is in its second season and going strong. Each week I am honored to highlight the accomplishments of women in the classical music world, and the listener feedback has been tremendously positive. I've also been interviewing some wonderful artists who have been performing in the area. If you'd like to learn more, you can find out all about Feminine Fusion here, and listen to archives of many of the interviews here.
