Upcoming Events

Greetings all,

I’ve decided to take up blogging again. I hope this time I’ll stick with it. I imagine that this blog will be focused mostly on events and performances, plus the occasional time for me to write about musical topics that I am interested in writing about.

Here’s a list of upcoming events:

March 9 & 10: My quartet, Steppin Out, will be competing in the BHS Far West District Preliminary Contest and the Southeast Division Contest. Also, Pacific Coast Harmony, will be competing in the Southeast Division Chorus contest.

March 21: I will be performing on the SDSU School of Music & Dance’s Combined Choirs and Dance concert. I will be singing Eric Whitacre’s Cloudburst, and be doing live music for some of the dance works.

April 19: There is a John Cage celebration at SDSU’s Smith Recital Hall that I will be part of. I will be performing selections from Cage’s Songbook, and I will be performing Cage’s Radio Music.

April 25: There will be an unstaged reading/workshop of The Scent of Jasmine on Parker Street, and new one-act opera by Ted Washington and I. We will be taking comments from the audience so please feel free to share your opinions.

That’s all for now.
