It’ time once again to usher in the holiday season with our annual production of the Nutcracker. This is a great holiday tradition, and the Flint Institute of Music and Harlem Ballet do a wonderful job with this production.

Flint’s annual Music In The Parks concert series starts off this year with the Flint Symphony Orchestra performing at Crossroads Village.
We’ve got a really fun program planned, with everything from movie music (E.T.) to patriotic tunes to one of my favorites, John Williams’ Summon the Heroes.
Come on out for a fun and relaxing evening, rain or shine!!
This week I’ll be performing with Bay City’s Bijou Orchestra as they kick off the summer concert series at the Pigeon Band Shell in, you guessed it, Pigeon, Michigan.
If you’re hanging out in the upper thumb this Thursday, come on out and have a listen!!

We’ll be starting 2010 with a bang in Flint this month with a performance of Gustav Mahler’s seventh Symphony. It is always a joy to perform Mahler’s works. The trumpet parts in his symphonies are well-written and as musically gratifying as they are challenging. Come on out for an exciting evening!
Also on the program will be the Reinecke Concerto in D major for Flute and Orchestra, featuring 2009 Byrd Competition winner Conor Nelsen.
