Many of you haven't heard from me in a while. I was duly affected by the hurricane, as I live in Brooklyn's Coney Island area. My car was totaled by the tidal wave, and I was without power and heat for 2 weeks. But life goes on, and I'm already in the midst of a very busy period (though I'm always open to more good quality work!). Some of you have asked me to keep you posted about interesting musical activities, and beside many orchestral concerts, here are some highlights for the near future:
I'm playing Concertmaster for a production of the Broadway show, "Oliver" in Staten Island. There are a number of very prominent violin solos in this show. This will be held at the Hill Academy at 850 Hylan Blvd. on Friday, November 23 and Saturday, Nov. 24 at 8PM.
On Sunday, December 2, 8PM I will be playing Concertmaster for the well-known pop star, Clay Aiken. This will also be in Staten Island at the beautifully-restored St. George Theater, 30 Hyatt Street.
On the following dates, times and locations I will be playing as concertmaster for the Treasurehouse chorale orchestra, where I will also be the featured soloist in "Winter" from the Vivaldi "Four Seasons". I'll be both soloing and conducting the ensemble!
Saturday, December 8 7:30PM St. Mary's Church, Wappinger Falls, NY
Sunday, Dec. 9, 7:30PM St. James Church, Carmel, NY
Sunday, Dec. 16, 4PM St. Elizabeth Seton, Shrub Oak, NY
I may go into more detail on some of the above in future blogs.
In the spring I'm planning a completely unaccompanied recital! I'll keep you posted.
