Hi everyone, I hope you are having a great autumn! Things have been busy over here with a lot of great music and challenges!!
I found a Reiffel & Husted slide saxophone that is proving to be quite a difficult thing to play. I’ve been trying to ask some trombonists for help! I’ve started the mixing process for the solo mezzo-soprano saxophone recording I did back in August as well. I’ve also started composing a song cycle for voice and piano (and guests) that will debut next year as part of the National Sawdust Stone Commissioning Series. Stay tuned for more on that!
Here are some upcoming gigs; if you are in the area, please come by and say hello! Thank you for your continuing support.
