This post is embarrassingly tardy considering my first and last post was dated February 29, 2012. What can I say? Much has happened in the er … 2.5 years since that post including KYLE RESNICK AND I GOT HITCHED! We also moved to Buffalo, I started a job as a professor at the University at Buffalo, we bought a house, and oh yeah, WE HAD A KID! His name is Ko and he’s almost 1 year old now. Ko has absolutely taken over our lives and life is all amuck but we love the chaos (sometimes) and are finally settling down after a whirlwind few years.
So the extra big news coming up is that I’m headed down to Sydney and Melbourne to play Max Richter’s Vivaldi Recomposed! I’ve never been to Australia before and since Ko will be waiting for me at home, I won’t have much time for exploration but I’m planning to make the most of this trip. I’m super stoked to work with Max for the first time and with my Wordless Music Orchestra friends for the billionth time. This group of people is seriously the BEST EVER so I can’t wait. Not to mention, I’m playing with my old friends ACME in a few concerts this season so really, life is just abounding with wonderful things.
Here’s to good friends and good music!
