In mid-June through early July, I drove across the country; spending more time in the Southwest. Highlights included Cedar Breaks, backpacking in Zion, magnificent Highway 12 in Utah and Capitol Reef. I have been so lucky to have explored this area the past few years. What a beautiful part of the US.
The rest of the summer included teaching and performing at the Tonebank International Festival in Windsor, CT and starting my new life in Providence, RI. After new experiences and lessons learned, I'm excited to be back East. It's still a bit of a shock, but that's only because of the wonderful community that I won't be seeing on a weekly basis in Davis, CA.
Starting September 1st, I will be the Acting Music Director at First Church in Jamaica Plain, MA!! It will be wonderful to work with another Unitarian congregation. Learning the trade of being a choral director will be very exciting.
October 7-12: Mozart Piano Quartet with Susan Lamb Cook and friends in Davis, Sacramento and Folsom, CA.
October 17-19: Chopin Mazurkas, Schnittke Piano Quintet, Pärt Fratres, etc. with Island Moving Company (dance company) in Newport, RI.
Also, I am looking to build a studio in the Providence area of piano students who are committed to learning music. I will teach any age, the only requirement is a love of music and desire to learn. If you are interested in having lessons, or have a friend who might be interested, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
