Quiet summer…

Feels strange to have no marathon productions this summer – but sometimes, a break is nice. Only show on the agenda is West Side Story, for the outstanding Ms. Amanda Morgan, in Derry, NH, 7/25 to 7/27. The break is also giving me a chance to reunite with John Beyrent and Carter Mountain Brass, Carl Swain and Piscataqua River Brass, and the legendary Michele Boulanger and Dover Community Band! Next week I’ll be teaching our 6th grade orientation summer class, which I haven’t gotten to do in years, and teaching private lessons throughout the summer. LHS Band Camp begins August 11th, giving me exactly my 6-week sweet spot I like to have for a summer off-season, so it’s actually quite perfect.

Upcoming Events – Holidays 2013!

Somehow, it’s been more than a year since I’ve updated! I’ve had the opportunity to play some great shows this year, beginning with A Chorus Line and Sweeney Todd at Seacoast Rep in Portsmouth, and most recently, what critics have been calling a “broadway-quality” production of Monty Python’s Spamalot at the Palace Theatre in Manchester. I have loved working at both venues and look forward to playing in future productions there. Now gearing up for another holiday season, and despite another full schedule, I’ve managed to come out with a free weekend in the middle of December!
