This past week I traveled to Oklahoma and Texas with my friend Ann Bradfield for a few performances and masterclasses. We made stops at the University of North Texas (Denton), Northeastern State University Woodwind Day (Tahlequah, OK), Stephenville High School and Tarleton State University (Stephenville, TX) before heading down to San Antonio to present at the Texas Music Educator's Association Convention. It was a great time, and thanks to everyone that came out to see us!
PERSEPHONE is (loosely) based on the spring maiden’s unwitting descent to the throne of the underworld. Straying from the original Greek mythology, our story finds Persephone on a quest. She (like many of us) is searching for something that can only be found by venturing into (and embracing) the unknown.
Come this next weekend to check out PERSEPHONE at the JSB TEKBOX in the Cowels Center for Dance and the Performing Arts in downtown Minneapolis! A completely original work, this production features an hour-long cycle of new music by composer Ted Moore for viola, saxophones, piano, percussion, and electronics. Direction and choreography by Hannah Holman. Lighting design by Courtney Schmitz-Watson. December 4-6. Buy tickets HERE!
New sounds! This piece agape.Closed for solo voice by Joey Crane was written for me and premiered earlier this month at the Contemporary Music Workshop concert in Ted Mann Concert Hall in Minneapolis, MN.
The past week, AVIDduo performed our Different Worlds program and gave lectures and masterclasses at Northeastern State University, Millersville College, and Lafayette College! We were delighted to perform on the Old Wood New Sounds concert series as well which had amazing wine pairings by The Vineyard at Grandview. After our tour, we spent a few days in New York visiting the Yamaha Atelier, seeing some amazing art exhibits, and visiting old friends!
