Let me start this post with a heartfelt HAPPY FOURTH OF JULY to each and every one of you!!
Today, as I write this, it is the Fourth of July.. Independence Day here in the United States!! I’ve just finished a very demanding week of performances. Now, for the first time in years, I have a couple of months in the summer that are virtually gig-free. I do have a few weddings, and there are a couple of public concerts in the works that may or may not happen, but for the most part, I’ve got a nice long stretch of rest and relaxation coming my way, and I could not be happier!!
This is the first summer since 2002 that I will not be heading to California and the Cabrillo Festival in August. As a result, I have lots more time and resources to spend having fun and recharging for the year ahead, and that’s exactly what I’m going to do!
Of course, I will be continuing my full summer private teaching schedule (don’t worry, students!) and, yes, I’ll still be practicing and working on several upcoming projects.
Have a great summer!!! I’ll be back in a while, refreshed, renewed, and ready to get back out there!!
