What's Going On?
This is just a quick (for me) note about an exciting concert I have coming up out of town.
You may recall that last spring I did a program called CHROMA, an exploration of color and contrast featuring video elements by Paul Hamilton and Caleb Vinson and music by Rossini, Silvestrini, Pasculli, and Louiguy. It coupled the light and movement of Impressionist painting with the beauty and virtuosity of the solo oboe, and celebrated the colors of the human voice.
At the end of this week I will have the opportunity to revisit this program. Paul and I will be traveling to Pennsylvania, and performing CHROMA on the Delaware County Community College's Concert Series. The performance is Sunday, April 29, at 3pm, and further information is available HERE.
If you don't happen to live near Philadelphia, you could still help us out by letting your East Coast friends know about this performance. My fan club is not primarily located in this area and a little work of mouth could only help.
What Else is Going On?
I am premiering a new teaching project - an Oboe Reed Boot Camp - which will run for a week this June. In three hours a day I hope to turn tentative beginners into confident reed-makers. I have more information about this HERE.
I will be performing Doug Lofstrom's beautiful and rhapsodic Concertino for Oboe at the International Double Reed Society's annual conference this July in Oxford, OH. July 9, at 4:45pm.
