April ’19 Shows

April 8, 2019

Guess what I’m blogging about!?!? Yes, shows, concerts and performances, and lots of the them. And guess what else?!?!?! You’re invited!!!!!!!!!!!!

1st, I encourage you all to check out and consider attending one of my 3 events listed there. Each one is a different group and will feature some of my original music. There’s: Tuesday 4/9 7pm Cosa Nostra Strings in Richmond. Sunday 4/14 7pm Greek Music Project in Berkeley, and Thursday 4/18 7pm Proteus Trio in Kensington. A Groupmuse is a classical (Or at least half-classical) house concert. I tend to play these every once in a while so it wouldn’t hurt to check the website every now and then. There’s lot’s of other great events listed as well!

OK now for the public events!

Friday 4/12 7pm Musical Art Quintet at Swedenborgian Church: 2107 Lyon St, San Francisco, CA 94115. Musical Art Quintet is playing a benefit for InnerMusic SF, which used to be San Francisco Friends of Chamber Music, a great organization that supports and provides fiscal sponsorship for a lot of local groups. They also give out a lot of grants that support the local music community. Musical Art Quintet is a former grant recipient, and thus, we are playing this year’s benefit concert. Event page

Saturday 4/13 8pm Composer Arranger Performer Orchestra at Peralta Station Annex: 3003 Peralta Street, Oakland.Also know and CAPO, we are a string orchestra that plays our own music! We don’t perform very often, so when we do, it’s very special. We’re playing 2 of my originals and one of my arrangements of a song by Ariel Wang. Check out the event page for more details.

Wednesday 4/17 7:30pm Bach Project Part 4: Goldberg Variations at the Musical Offering Cafe: 2430 Bancroft Way, Berkeley, CA 94704. This is with Nigel Armstrong and Jacob Hansen Joseph.

This is a huge collaboration with guest musicians and dancers. Event page
Also, have I mentioned I have a podcast? Its called “The Crossover Cellist,” and on it, I interview my friends and colleagues about our various musical projects. Listen to my latest episode with Matt Montgomery here, and keep a lookout for more! The next episode is with Crystal Pascucci, and it is imminent.
