I am gearing up for two exciting performances happening in the next two weeks, the first of which is a new addition. I am honored to announce I’ll be performing the first pieces on the 2015-16 Student Recital Series at Curtis. It is always a thrill to perform with brilliant friends and colleagues, especially in a special concert such as this! The evening’s program looks really great, and I hope you’ll join us for what is the first of many excellent Curtis recitals. Be sure to arrive early to get seats – this recital usually fills quickly. If you can’t make it to Philadelphia, the performance will also be broadcast live on Curtis Performs (details below).
The second recital takes us to Wilmington, DE and a picture-perfect church in the old meadows. I just heard the organ for the first time at Nathan Laube’s concert last Friday and was blown away; we’re in for a treat with this instrument. The program precedes an Evensong service, which will showcase the organ and all-professional choir of Christ Church.
I hope you’ll be able to join us for some great music at these events – see you there!
