In light of the ongoing pandemic, South Shore Conservatory is now offering a virtual summer festival, SMFConnect. Designed for students in grades 5 through college, the structure and schedule of the program is flexible, allowing students to pursue different interests and levels of time commitment. I will be offering group lessons (grades 5-6), private lessons (grades 7 and up), horn masterclasses, and audition workshop. Hope to see you there!
Registration for AQBW 2019 is now open! Ryan, Greg and I had blast with our students last year, and we’re looking forward to round 2, only this time bigger and brassier with Katie and Matthew. Learn more and register at: andromedaquintet.com
Our department at WCMS is giving a recital, and I’ll be doing double-duty – brass quartet, and woodwind quintet! Join us for an afternoon of diverse, fun, family-friendly music-making. Let us know you’ll be there with an RSVP, then share the event with your friends.
Here’s a taste of Red Hedgehog Trio’s summer adventures.
Late summer greetings from your doting horn trio!
We wanted to share a quick update about what we’ve been up to this summer.
This June, we spent a wonderful two weeks in Saranac, NY, as guests of Hill and Hollow Music. We were fed, entertained, and housed like royalty; we got to hunker down and rehearse daily with a beautiful concert grand piano in a magical space with the perfect acoustic for our ensemble, and then perform there; we were taken on hikes and swims and provided firewood for a solstice fire in our very own fire pit.
As soloist, duo, and then full-on horn trio, we rehearsed and performed Bach’s First Partita in B-flat, Brahms’ Sonata for Piano and Violin in A Major, Op. 100, John Harbison’s Twilight Music, and our 10X10 set. Here is a wonderful, in-depth article about our ensemble and our concert program by Ben Pomerance…

Spring is just around the corner, and so is my rescheduled recital! I’m grateful that we were able to find an alternate date – no small feat given busy musicians’ time constraints, and the full schedule of performances at WCMS.
Looking forward to sharing the stage with my wonderful colleagues and bringing these pieces to life!
My recital tomorrow has been cancelled, courtesy of the cruel weather gods of New England. As the helpful map above indicates, the Greater Boston area is about to get hammered with yet another snowstorm. That’s 3 in 3 weeks, in case you’ve been counting – third time’s the charm? Hopefully we can find a date to reschedule – I’ll keep you posted. You can read more about the storm here.
Stay safe and warm, everyone!
A fundamental element of my instrument is its deep connection to nature. Please join me and my wonderful colleagues on a musical exploration of the woods and streams of Europe from 1828 through the early 20th century. Repertoire includes: La Chasse de St. Hubert by Busser, Schubert’s Auf dem Strom, Im Tiefsten Walde by Schmid, and Brahms’ Trio for Horn, Violin, and Piano. Hope to see you there!
Pretty appealing, right? I’m thrilled to tell you about my latest project in collaboration with my dear friends Marji and Dan – the Red Hedgehog Trio. We’ve been playing together for a while now, but this season we’re pursuing a bunch of initiatives including concerts, educational performances, new music, and more. Stay tuned for updates!
