I wanted to take a minute and post my updated performance schedule
for everyone for the 1999 Spring Semester...
Two of the gigs are coming up very soon, and the rest of the
semester will follow below this...
For those of you in the Maryland/D.C. area, I will be performing on
the "Bach, Beethoven, and the Boys..." concert put on by the FCC Chamber
Players at Frederick Community College in Frederick, MD., this Sunday,
07 Feb. 99 (AT) 3:00 p.m. Admission is free. I will be performing Mozart's
"Rondo in Eb" from his Horn Quintet, K. 407, arranged for tuba and
piano. The show will end with myself, a violinist, and pianist
performing the swing trio "Bach at the Double", which was "composed" by
the illustrious P.D.Q. Bach. Three movements in length, it takes some of
the more famous Bach melodies and proceeds to musically destroy them,
and each Bach melody eventually becomes a tune like "Ain't She Sweet" or
"In the Mood". Serious Bach devotees should leave before this tune ;-)
Following the FCC gig, I will be spending two days - Feb. 09 and 10
- as a guest artist at Valdosta State University in Valdosta, Georgia. I
will be giving a master class/clinic, and performing a full recital on
the 10th. Contact Kenyon Wilson, professor of tuba at VSU, for more
