Music news! Huzzah!

It's September 2021 and it feels like the world is in another transition. Obviously it's back-to-school time and for many students it's also back-to-school-in-person time, but not for me just yet. Fortunately I will continue to offer music lessons via video like I have since quarantine began in March 2020. But there is some notable in-person news: I am playing a concert at the end of the month!

That's right, a real, live, in-person concert, which is being held outdoors in the beautiful Leach Botanical Gardens of Southeast Portland. You'll be invited to wind your way through the garden and listen to several different chamber groups positioned around the property. This concert is presented by Cascadia Composers, a local collective of composers who write music in a wide range of styles. I'm excited to play four pieces at this concert and if you're in Portland I hope to see you there! Click the image below for tickets and more info.

The restaurant is chugging along and I am so grateful to all of our customers and supporters who have been there since the beginning and helped keep us afloat during this very difficult times! I am equally grateful to the fabulous team in the kitchen and in the office that keep the customers happy and the bills paid. We continue to offer takeout only and please note our shortened hours. Did you miss the announcement and have no idea what I'm talking about? Check out nverse here and take a look for yourself. It might make you hungry though.

The good weather will be behind us soon enough, and with that (and Delta) in mind, I'm happy to announce I'm going to be doing some more streaming shows this fall! They're still in the planning stages so I don't want to say too much about it just yet, but I can tell you that they are going to be something a little different than you have seen/heard from me lately and that there may be possibly three of them in October-November. More info to come so make sure you're subscribed to the mailing list and you'll get all the details. For now, say goodbye to summer and catch the last of the sunny days. . . .

Taken in July from Lincoln City, Oregon!

Thanks for reading and take care. Happy fall!
