New Music @ Omni Commons

August 11, 2015

Happy August!

Life is good and full of music making. I’m trying to write more music these days, and though most of my pieces are unfinished, I did manage to complete Short Quartets 3 and 4. The Town Quartet is performing these, along with Short Quartets 1 and 2, at the Omni Commons in Oakland this Friday at 8pm. We are also playing new string quartet pieces by Kevin Boursiquot and Mateo Lugo, two fine, local, composers. It has been a real pleasure working on their music, and the whole process has helped inspire me to write more! Here is a more official description:

The Town Quartet is excited to present a program of all new music for string quartet by Oakland composers at the Omni Commons, Friday, August 14th. They will feature the music of Kevin Boursiquot, a recent transplant from SF, Venezuelan born Mills College grad, Mateo Lugo, and Oakland native and Town Quartet cellist, Lewis Patzner. The Omni Commons is a “space that fosters an ethic of radical collaboration across disciplines and between individual collectives, creating a living model for future radical spaces.” 8PM, $10-$20. 4799 Shattuck Ave, Oakland.

I also want to say thanks to all of the generous patrons of the arts who donated to the Musical Art Quintet Kickstarter campaign. We met our goal! It’s awesome to know that people actually care about what we’re doing. Recording has been fun and productive, and I can’t wait to finish and share it you, the world. We have some upcoming shows, so check out our website at musicalartquintet.com. Thank you Thank you Thank you!
