Mid-October Fest

October 12, 2013

Garden 10:12:13As Fall envelopes us, I’m taking after our wild mammalian friends and preparing for the coming season. This means navigating through rehearsals with various ensembles, hauling manure, practicing, collecting fallen leaves, writing, and the occasional Terrelle Pryor inspired vision quest. MAQ has its usual multitude of shows, though Yoshi’s was sadly cancelled. The Haydn cycle continues with two Opus 76’s, and here’s some notes on some other stuff:

La Dee Da’s album release show is Thursday the 17th at Subterranean Arthouse! I’m really proud of our new album, “A Day in the Park.” Come by and pick up your very own vinyl or tape copy! The show will have our righteous horn section, plus we just did some touring so you know we’re gonna be good.

Devotionals is stirring. Come see what I’m talking about at the shows listed below.

This month’s Classical Revolution at Awaken Cafe on the 23rd looks to be a great show. We have chamber music by Crussel, Verdi, and Mozart, and some chamber orchestra music by Handel and Vivaldi. I will perform the Vivaldi Cello Concerto in G RV 413. Yikes!

The Town Quartet is playing in the Curtain Call Performing Arts concert series at the California Conservatory Theater in San Leandro Saturday November 9th. The program is Bartok 2, Brahms 3, Ginastera 1. If you’re wondering how we picked this program I can guide you through the 3 steps that constitute our approach for this show. Step 1: Be completely nuts. Step 2: Pick program. Step 3: Panic. We’re in step 3 right now so you can imagine what that’s like. However tough the road, I’m really excited to tackle the challenge and perform some great music.
