Hello! This Saturday I am accompanying some wonderful singers at Drew for an event celebrating the work of English poet Lord Byron. The composers of the songs have set parts of Byron’s poetry to music. The lecturer, Dr. Robert Butts, is going to talk about Byron’s impact on music, which, let’s be honest… really wasn’t that big. Then, off to a recording session at Montclair the following Monday. They are recording some arrangements I made for Tim Janis.
I’ve resumed work on a light orchestral piece I began a year ago, and I’m arranging the anthemic “Let it Go” from this year’s Disney animated blockbuster Frozen for my friend Anthony Gioia, who is director of bands for the schools in Fort Lee. They are hoping to play it in their concert in June!
That’s all the news I’ve got for now. I can’t say I don’t miss performing (my last solo recital was March 2013), but right now my time does not really allow me the luxury of maintaining a full program.
While you’re here, check out some of my friends’ websites on my “links” page! They are all up to some pretty cool stuff.
