Next stop: Nairobi?

I met hornist Nick Walls earlier this year at a chamber music gig on the Upper West Side. However, I didn't find out he grew up in Kenya until just a couple of weeks ago. I casually mentioned doing an outreach trip there and he and oboist Ellen Hindson (also working the gig) seemed very interested. It looks like I'm going to start planning a trip to Kenya for next summer!

Benefit concert at the Philippine consulate

Last night the team and several other guest artists gave an incredible show at the Philippine Consulate in New York City. Brian and I gave the world premiere of Molly Joyce's "Blending Music" which she composed for us and the rest of the team. The show was beautiful, each act being separated not by applause, but by voice overs of every performer talking about the performance and how they decided to become artists. I was very inspired.
We also raised over $2000, which was our goal. Thank you! Philippines, here we come!!
