Spring Newsletter!

Friends, here is my March Newsletter. I hope there’s something of interest to all.

Thanks for looking/hearing/comments!

New page on my website: Technique and Tips for guitarists. The link is Here.

Recording news:

I recently finished recording works of Frank Brickle with the Cygnus Ensemble and sopranos Haleh Abghari and Elizabeth Farnum. Look for a fall release date.

The Fireworks Ensemble’s new CD of the works of Frank Zappa is finished! Arranged for the ensemble by Brian Coughlin, the CD should be available for purchase on May 1st. Stay tuned for a CD release party at Le Poisson Rouge in mid May.

Video News:

Here’s a new video of early Elliott Carter with Jessica Bowers, mezzo soprano.


I had a great time with the Argento Ensemble in LA, performing Romitelli’s “Professor Bad Trip”. Read the LA Times rave review Here.

Fireworks Ensemble just returned from a week long residency in Montgomery Alabama, courtesy of the Clefworks organization. Great music (Zappa, Stravinsky, Dance, and American Music), hosts, students, and audiences!
