Driving to Halifax with 3 bassoons and Leslie Newman’s really heavy electronics case for her solo piece plus a few hundred copies of our new CD! I saw the WHOLE ECLIPSE last night from the highway, and the previous night, got to stay awake, listening to roving wolf pack howling gloriously at the massive moon. We have a FaceBook page for THREE now!
Scarlatti mini-disc to honour my move to the Drayton church/studio is at the printer and can be pre-ordered here. ALL proceeds go to support the Council of Canadian Bassoonists. Going to play this music at a bunch of places on the road in honour of Save the Bassoon Day on October 11!
Taking my new electrified bassoon with me on the maritime tour, hoping to have some time on my day off to play with it. And taking another student bassoon out to a deserving young player in New Brunswick on behalf of the Council of Canadian Bassoonists. And hoping to buy a paddle board from Pat Bolduc since I couldn’t bring kayak on this trip!
Adding stuff to my YouTube channel... this week the world premiere of the Oddbird Concerto, written for me by Mathieu Lussier. Premiering Apollo X by Paul Frehner in February 2016 with the group of 27. I am now booked to give premieres across Canada in the next three years. all part of the on-going Canadian Concerto Project.
First review for the Canadian Concerto Project, Volume One... thanks to the American Record Guide for noticing both our music, our composers and our hair!
