Finished recording chamber music album with THREE (Leslie Newman, flute and Guy Few, piano & trumpet); now a whirlwind of editing, licensing, graphic design and production in time for tour at end of September.

Working on three commissioning grants to get new concerti from Emily Doolittle and Barbara Croall.  I have a grant writer assistant for the first time and it is absolute heaven.

I’m looking forward to my next photo shoot at the end of August in my new church studio: makeup/hair by the amazing Courtney Reynolds, owner of Jackrabbit Salon (she’s been responsible for my hair for the last 5 years); clothes by Magpie Designs and Fortune Teller (custom black lace gloves) and photos by Bo Huang.

I listened again the raw video footage of my premiere of Silver Angel  with Thirteen Strings on June 12, directed by Kevin Mallon and look forward to releasing some or all of it to YouTube this summer... I think it’s best to release segments but have to learn how to edit.  Or drag my professional videographer into my studio to clip stuff with me.  Silver Angel by Constantine Caravassilis was commissioned for me by Thirteen Strings and it was very powerful.  I also played Vivaldi G Minor RV 495.  The orchestra is very experienced and supportive and it was great to be back in the musical orbit of Kevin Mallon.  Here is a photo from our sweltering rehearsal of Silver Angel.
