1938121_258312947662399_1891479207_nThis week I had the distinct pleasure to interview not only a dear friend of mine but a world famous conductor and now composer, Richard Haglund.
You can read more about Richard here -  Biography 

In 2011, I was Richard's Concertmaster for Festival Negri Horti in Tuscany and I enjoyed very much playing Peter and the Wolf for Children's Concerts. It was a wonderful experience and my first time in Italy.  Richard was also the Assistant conductor of the Illinois Symphony when I was a member and we also worked together on cd recordings.  Richard has recently started to compose more and now I am very excited to have the opportunity to be part of the World Premiere of Richard's String Quartet "The States of Consciousness."

Quartet Fusion's concert March 6, 11:05 AM CST, featuring the "States of Consciousness" World Premier, will be live streamed from Bulgaria to the world.

Reserve your tickets here - first 10 reservations are free all tickets thereafter $10.00 

In the interview, Richard and I not only discuss the States of Consciousness we discuss the importance of: 

  • Music in culture

  • Music used as manipulation through vibrational energy

  • Knowledge of different styles and genres

  • Connection

  • Supporting new music of all kinds

  • Music as a universal language


Enjoy the interview :)
Love and Light from Bulgaria
