Dear Family, Friends, Colleagues, Students and Parents,
First let me apologize for this post coming half way into the month. The preparations for the Mozart Flute and Harp Concerto have taken all my attention. We had a wonderful performance last night in Palm Beach Gardens, with Harpist Kay Kemper and the ACO! There are 3 more performances you can catch. Tonight (March 15th) at the Waxlax Theatre on the campus of St. Edward’s School in Vero Beach at 7:30PM. There are 2 performances tomorrow (March 16th) at 4 and 8 PM at the Lyric Theatre in Stuart. Hope to see you there. I know you will enjoy this all Mozart program. Please stop and say hello.
I have heard from many of you that you enjoyed the BSO earlier this month, with soloist Paul Huang in the Barber Violin Concerto. Christopher Confessore conducted the program which also included Schubert’s Rosamunde Overture and the 6th Symphony of Dvorak.
Also earlier this month the Melbourne Chamber Music Society featured the American Brass Quintet. It was the 40th anniversary celebration concert for the society who commissioned a work that the ABQ premiered. It was an absolutely terrific piece. The players and the audience loved it. Having the composer, Dan Coleman on hand made the event even more special. Congratulations to MCMS and ABQ!
Students and Parents: Thank you for being so flexible with the schedule this month. This is one of the disadvantages of lessons with a working musician. I know, however, that for those of you who are able to attend the concerts FREE OF CHARGE, the benefits out way the sometimes challenging schedule. Looking ahead for those interested, there will be a special performance of Verdi’s Requiem on Good Friday at the Community Church in Vero Beach.
This and That: REALLY looking forward to baseball season. Opening day is early this year – March 29th.
