I hope you all had a terrific summer filled with memorable music, family gatherings and sun! My return to the fantastic Round Top Festival in Texas was amazing as I worked with truly fantastic college students from around the country. For me the highlights were holding my 3rd viola master class, performing incredible chamber music with the stellar faculty, and having the privilege of performing one of my favorite viola concerti, the Walton! I also enjoyed visiting the Luzerne Music Center and the New York Summer Music Festival where I gave recitals and master classes.
This season is going to be exciting as I hold my first viola seminar in Provence, perform and teach at festivals in Brazil as well as give the world premiere of two new viola concerti in Los Angeles and Omaha. Other concerto appearances in Seattle, New Jersey, Ecuador, and Los Angeles will certainly keep me busy.
I'm also very excited to be teaching at the Aaron Copland School of Music at Queens College in NY. I'll be giving master classes in North and South America and Europe this season, something I love to do!
So please check out my performance schedule and stop by for a performance and a visit!
