2015 and beyond!

News! Soundry is going well, two concerts in. I'll be posting some audio and video from those concerts soon, along with an update soon for the last two concerts. I will also be posting more (at all) here, New Year's resolutions and everything. So, just a little bit of information as the year ends and I try to make 2015 my most successful year so far!

I'll be playing a couple of rare orchestral performances on February 1, with the New England Repertory Orchestra (NERO). We're playing Ravel's Le Tombeau de Couperin  and Mozart's Symphony No. 35, "Haffner", along with Vivaldi's Double Cello Concerto. The week after (2/8), I'll be playing principal on Khatchaturian's Symphony No. 2 with the Boston Conservatory orchestra.

After that, on February 15, I have a recital of my own. My trio will be there, playing Chiffre IV by Wolfgang Rihm; I'll play Max Reger's Clarinet and Piano Sonata, op. 107, with Travis Reynolds; and I'll be joined by a couple of talented percussionists to play pieces by Denisov and Lindberg.

February is busy for me! And I know the beginning of the year is pretty busy for everyone else, so I want to invite you to join my brand new mailing list. I will send information about how to see me play directly into your home.

Here's to 2015, and plenty of new music!

First Post!

I finally did it! I finally have my own website set up, and even though I'm not finished with tweaks I'm ready for it to be live.

Here I'll try to keep you updated with my performances and other things happening in the part of my life consumed by the clarinet.

For about the next month I'm in crunch time for my recital, coming up February 28. I'm really excited because I'm playing a lot of really cool pieces. As soon as I have video, I'll put it on the website!

In the meantime, I'd love your feedback on my website. All your suggestions are helpful!
