Mind on Fire, Baltimore’s contemporary music collective, is teaming up with the Pratt Library to host a summer series of recitals at their various branch locations, and I will be playing a set of my favorite marimba works, as well as Mark Applebaum’s Aphasia, a piece inspired by this condition that disassociates words from their meaning, while surrounded by a lot of words and meaning :)
I return to Boscawen, NH to the surreal atmosphere of Avaloch Farm Music Institute for ten days, this time with The Percussion Collective and artistic director Robert van Sice, working on a new concerto by Chris Theofanidis and recent chamber works written for the ensemble
icarus Quartet has been chosen as one of two finalists to perform for the 34th edition of the CMYS series competition
I return to Baltimore’s Thrive series, this time with my duo partner, Matt Keown, for an evening of seamless percussion music, starting with high energy hocketing drum licks and fading out towards the most intimate marimba music there is. Works by Marino, Lang, Reich, Alberto/Gorosito, Jarrett, Aperghis, Rzewski, and Andersson.
The Percussion Collective performs Garth Neustadter’s Seaborne on a live WXQR broadcast from The Greene Space as part of their Midday Masterpieces series with host Elliott Forrest
I return to one of my favorite places, the Norfolk Chamber Music Festival, to reunite with Simon Carrington and the incredible instrumentalists, singers, and conductors for a few days of music making that culminate in a final concert, including a world premiere by Liliya Ugay and a work for percussion solo and choir by Chen Yi
Svet Stoyanov, Matt Keown, and I will play a family show of percussion music as part of a collaboration between the BSO and Port Discovery at Power Plant Live!
I'll be opening up this show with Thierry De Mey's delightful trio, Musique de Table, with percussionists Svet Stoyanov and Matt Keown as part of the Baltimore Symphony's second annual New Music Festival
