Finished a terrific week at the Music for All Summer Symposium. Grateful to everyone for inviting me, and looking forward to the next time I get to work with Michael Mcintosh, David Collier and Thad Anderson. Below you'll see some pics from the week, along with some photos from my time ( so far) at Sewanee. I was asked to conduct part of the July 4th band concert, which was great fun, and of course many shots of the students hard at work learning all of the notes we throw at them!
right when I got back to Sewanee I had the chance to play a concert with Joshua Roman - We performed as part of his residency at the SSMF - "Mariel" by Osvaldo Golijov. A truly remarkable work which I hope to play again soon
Next up here at the festival are student performances of Nordic Peace, Cage 2nd construction, Kyoto, Haydn quartets (set for mallet quartet, of course) and a couple of additional faculty concerts, and of course a great number of orchestral performances, and the concerto competition winners next week!
A busy and rewarding summer for sure.
Welcome! I am a percussionist, conductor and artistic leader who drinks a lot of coffee.
