Tomorrow evening, May 6, I'll be performing in a quartet assembled by LA bassist Jeff Schwartz, with Ellen Burr on flute and Charles Sharp, reeds. Can’t wait! Avant Music News gave us a great writeup. Should be a adventurous evening, presented by Open Gate Theater…we play around 8:00, preceded by the Vogel Saxon Duo at 7:00. Center for the Arts, Eagle Rock, 2225 Colorado Blvd. Admission is $10 (students, seniors, and past series performers half price); parking is free.

Kirsten Ashley Wiest will sing about the existential dilemma of what, exactly, money is, to kings, queens, and everybody! Nicholas Olof Jacobson-Larson conducts.
