Schubert Club Courtroom Concert


December Update

Season’s greetings!
I just wanted to let you know about a couple of performances I have coming up. The first is on Thursday, December 22 at noon in Courtroom 317 in Landmark Center for a Schubert Club Courtroom Concert. I will be playing solo, which is not something I have done very often. This concert is free.
The second is on Thursday, December 29 at 9:00 pm at the Acadia Cafe. I will be playing with my trio (Ted Olsen, bass; Matt Buckner, drums). No cover.
Also, I am pleased to note that, after a successful scholarship audition in November, I will be moving to New York in January to attend the New School for Jazz and Contemporary Music!
Happy holidays!
