I am so glad to see so many of my students off to a good start semester. Let’s keep that going!
Here on the Space Coast we really dodged a bullet with hurricane Dorian. Our hearts go out to those who were so terribly affected.
Scott and Tiki and I stayed here beach-side, but we had everything ready to go on a moments notice. Even though we were spared, it is still a nerve racking and exhausting process.
I am looking forward to the start of another season. Please check the websites of the Brevard Symphony Orchestra and the Atlantic Classical Orchestra for a sneak peak. I am looking forward to playing a lot of Beethoven over the next two seasons. All of the classical music world will be celebrating the 250th anniversary of his birth. (December 16th, 1770). Both the 2019-2020 and the 2020-2021 seasons will be filled with his music, so stay tuned for more details!
I am also looking forward to performing the Debussy Sonata for flute, viola and harp on the ACO chamber series. This is truly one of the greatest masterpieces in all of the chamber music repertoire.
One month left of regular season baseball. As of this writing, my Washington Nationals are in position for the first wild card in the National League. I am keeping my fingers crossed that I will actually have a team in the post season this year!
Newly discovered for me this month is the podcast, “Sticky Notes”. All classical music. They are terrific – check them out! You will really enjoy them!
That’s it for now.
