It seems this month is a month of Massachusetts. In the 3 ½ years I’ve lived in CT I had been there twice and now 4 performances in a month. This weekend I’ll be playing in Wilbraham at the Benefit for the Community Survival Center at 7:30 at Wilbraham & Monson Academy Chapel 423 Main Street Wilbraham, MA. I’ll be playing for the first time as an orchestral musician accompanying a choir. The following weekend will be the NASA conference at which I will play a couple of Matt Primm’s pieces with Rebekah Butler (violin), Juliet Dawson (viola), and Tristen Kasten-Krause (bass).
I will be making my return to performing in CT on Palm Sunday (3/24) with a concert entitled “The Bare Minimum” on the continuing Universalist music series (433 Fern St, West Hartford) at 5PM. The program will feature minimalist/post minimalist style music and an assortment of instruments and players. I hope to see many of you there!
Plans are gearing up for the next house concert, at the end of May. It will feature mostly music of Meredith Gilna and include works of some other fantastic local composers as well. Be on the lookout for more information soon!
As I walked around in Hartford today the snow reached the top of my legs, and I am a tall girl. I hope everyone is staying safe and relaxing in the forced vacation time. Due to my wish for the safety of all, and my inability to move my car (the street it's on is not yet plowed), my 2/10 recital in Wilbraham, MA is postponed to Saturday 2/23 at 4PM, same time same place. I hope many of you can still attend. That's all for now!
I've been meaning to get myself online for quite some time now. In fact, I've owned my domain name for about 4 years now. The best excuse of all, I would have to say, was grad school. So now that it's over I teach all afternoon/evening but don't have to go to work before 2:30 on schooldays, which leaves lots of morning time for random projects. So far I have read 13 books, taken up cooking again, cleaned my room (finally), started arranging pop tunes for students, and stopped biting my nails.
So here I am, please bear with me as I get to know the ropes of managing a site. Eventually there might even be recordings and current pictures, who knows what's next. But I think I'm done with the 6 month laze that followed my completion of my schooling, possibly for good. So stay tuned, because I'm bound to do something interesting every once in a while.
