My Spring Recital is coming up - Saturday, May 12th at 3pm, located at St. Mark's. Click the image below for the flyer with all the details. Several of my students will be performing as well as the usual groups with which I perform: The Tempe Guitar Trio and The Mesa Winds.
After the concert last night, my busy season is finally winding down. I've laid down my baton for the Pops Orchestra until October. The Sunland Singers also are off for the summer. The Mesa Band has only one more concert in May. Swing Memories has switched to a lighter summer schedule of rehearsals and gigs.
It's been a good second year of The Perry Project. I continue to be surprised and pleased to find new opportunities to meet musicians and make more music. Even though I am done with my busy performing season, I still have lots on my to-do list: I have high hopes for getting some more compositions completed this summer. I have my 4th Perry Project recital coming up on May 12th, where I plan to have another performance with the Woodwind Quartet and Tempe Guitar Trio as well as featuring my fantastic students and other musical friends. I'll be keeping busy at St. Mark's; the Praise Ensemble continues to expand its repertoire and we will also be having our third Taize service on May 13th. I also have a stack of New Guinea tapes that I need to digitize and process.
Amidst all of this music-making is my new son, Elmer. He's a handful, but a pleasant one.
Here's to another great month! Happy Easter everyone!
