News – End o’May 2010

May 28th, 2010

As June approaches, I’m luxuriating in a little down time, as the pace slows a little after a whirlwind spring. But there’s still plenty going on; gigs, a new recording in the works, planning for new enterprises and always the quest to discover more about music, life and its meaning.

Latvian Tour Rescheduled

I’m happy to announce that my NYU Ensemble’s Latvian tour, postponed from last month due to volcano generated travel difficulties, has been rescheduled to August 24th through the 28th. You can keep tabs on the Ensemble and the tour activities (and also make a tax deductible contribution towards out tour expenses!) at out New York Foundation for the Arts blog page. We also have a Facebook page and I’ll be blogging the tour and its runup on

Unsung Heroes Mastered; Announcement Soon on Release Schedule

Another happy event is that my “Unsung Heroes” recording project will have completed mastering by the time you read this – it’s finally ready to move out into the world! I will be making some exciting announcements soon concerning the project release schedule and will give you a sneak preview of the music. Now it’s time for the second part of the project – how to publicize and market my sounds so they can get to the folks who dig. Y’all can help! I’ll be letting you know how very soon.
