A New Blog – because the internet doesn’t have enough already

Greetings and salutations, and welcome to the Blog portion of my site. Postings here will be extremely random; both in frequency and subject matter. Mostly I’ll be talking about upcoming projects, performances, etc. Occasionally I may write down my thoughts on different musical subjects.

You may be looking for something from my old blog, which means you are probably looking for a concert review that I wrote.  (that was basically all that was in the old blog) Since I wrote all the concert reviews for the online music magazine Musetta Stone, I felt it made sense to just let them live there, and let this space be more about sharing news updates and the occasional random thought. So I deleted them from here. All the concert reviews I wrote can be found at www.musettastone.com.

Thanks for stopping by.
