Hey guys! Been a long time since I've updated! I've had a lovely fall with some gig highlights to share!
I played a really cool show for the shoe company Fitflop accompanying singer Julie Reumert with the awesome string players Adriana Molello, Susan Mandel, and Laura Sacks.
This October I went on a fun tour to Indiana with Max Jacob's powerful string ensemble Shattered Glass. On our way there the heating on our bus broke down. Here is a photo of my friend Brendan going into a questionable-looking old barn to talk to the truck repairman...
He made it out safely.
I played Louis Karchin's beautiful new opera Jane Eyre, and also performed with Bobbie Lee Crow's IconiQ The Sountrack Orchestra.
In the last couple months I got to play with some my favorite musicians on the face of the earth at incredible saxophonist Eddie Barbash's residency at the Roxy Hotel. I've been a super-fan of Eddie, Jon, Joe, and Ibanda ever since I saw their band Jon Batiste and Stay Human perform four years ago at the Cutting Room. That show had a profound effect on me and Stay Human became one of my biggest musical inspirations. Playing with Eddie at the Roxy has been a huge privilege and one of the highlights of my musical life.
On December 10th and 31st I'm playing with Eddie again at the Roxy, 8-10 pm! Please come check out a show!
I'm playing with another group I love, Chamber Orchestra of New York, at Weill Hall in Carnegie Hall December 8th. Also a spiffing show that you should definitely see:)
I'm also very excited to be releasing a new video soon with three of my closest friends (who also happen to be my musical partners-in-crime), so stay tuned!
Hope you guys have an awesome month, and thanks for reading!
