Great Things are Happening!
There is just too much to say.... 60x60 is full tilt.
I will be in Canada this week, but other great things are happening in North
I usually don't plug; however, I fyou can get out to one or both of these
two following events you will not be sorry.
A Vox Novus composer George Brunner has some of his work being performed at
the International Electroacoustic Music Festival.
And if you know Contemporary flute... You know Robert Dick.
He is having a retrospect of his 50 years making it happen at Carnegie hall.
I am completely upset to have to miss these two events. But you all know...
The show must go on. I am happy to have been just inspired by these two
Onwards and Upwards!
