New Podcast/CAPO 8/31

August 19, 2018

Hi Friends!

I feel like its been a while since I sent one of these out, but there are some special things happening, so I thought I would l let you know.
First, I have a new podcast called the Crossover Cellist, where I interview my friends and colleagues about our various musical projects. So far, there are 2 episodes, one with Shaina Evoniuk and one with Jeremy Lyon. You can listen on apple podcasts, spotify, stitcher, or here:

Next, I have been focusing a lot of energy into an upcoming concert with the Composer Arranger Performer Orchestra at St. Paul’s Lutheran Church in Oakland, Friday, August 31st, at 7:30PM. We are featuring two esteemed guest artists, violinist Evan Price, and St. PLCO music director Derek Sup. Evan Price will perform his Violin Concerto, and this is not to be missed. The rest of the program is original compositions and arrangements by members of the group, including my String Symphony. Also, I roped my mother, Carla Picchi, into playing (thanks mom!). Here’s the facebook page with info:
Sunday, August 26th, Ariel and I are hosting a show at 6PM with some friends and a band from down south called Sprain. It’s gonna be hella fun! Facebook event:
Other things are happening too! Here’s the August calendar:
Sunday 8/19 1PM Town Quartet at the Musical Offering Cafe in Berkeley. The plan is to play, amongst other music, my 6 Short Quartets.
Monday 8/20 8:30PM Musical Art Quintet plays the Revolution Cafe in SF (we’ll probably play on the later side).
Wednesday 8/22 7PM Quantum Quintet plays the Montgomery Center in Healdsburg. Music by Labor, Ravel, and Schubert (Trout Quintet).
Wednesday 8/22 10PM (or whenever I get there) Musical Art Quintet plays Monroe’s in SF.
Thursday 8/23 7PM I’m playing a string quartet Groupmuse (classical music house concert) in Oakland. Check for more details.
Friday 8/24 9PM I’m sitting in with King Dream at the Independent in SF. See the podcast episode with Jeremy Lyon for more info.
Saturday 8/25 11AM Playing a brunch set with Ariel Wang at the Well in Oakland.
Sunday 8/26 1PM Piano Quartets at the Musical Offering Cafe
Sunday 8/26 6PM Slowcore/Folk house show, playing with Ariel Wang.
Friday 8/31 7:30 CAPO Chamber Orchestra Plays the Evan Price Concerto at St. Paul’s Lutheran Church of Oakland.

Looking past August, Cosa Nostra Strings is playing every weekend at the Soiled Dove (downtown Oakland burlesque/acrobatic show) starting late September going till mid November. However, Im subbing out for a couple of projects. Trio E’Trange is playing Anne Rainwater’s Vernon Salon Oct 19, and I’m playing a new opera by Brett Carson the weekend of October 26th at the Temescal Center for the Arts. Look for a Town Quartet concert around then as well.
Other things on the horizon are a chamber music/lecture series, and the Bach Project. Aug26_2018HouseShowCAPO_flyer_8-31-18QUANTUM2IMG_0735
