I will be in Greensboro and Jamestown, NC this upcoming weekend for a couple of different events. Friday and Saturday (February 21-22, 2014) North Carolina’s All State Honor Choruses will be performing at Greensboro War Memorial Coliseum Complex. I’m not directly involved in this event, just chaperoning some students from Owen High School while I’m covering for their director while she’s on family leave (congratulations, Mrs. S!). The performance is on Saturday, February 22, 2014 at 3:00 PM. If you’ve not heard a high school honor ensemble perform before, you should come on out and hear these talented and dedicated young musicians sing. It’s really amazing how much they accomplish in just a couple of days.
Later on Saturday evening (February 22, 2014) I’ll be playing with the Low-Down Sires at Castle McCulloch for the Mardi Gras of the Carolinas party. We start playing traditional New Orleans jazz at 9:30 PM and the party will go into the wee hours of the morning.
If you’re in the area looking for live music to hear, come on out to one of these different performances. I will have some down time during the days, so it may also be possible to meet up for some lessons, if anyone was looking for a brass embouchure consultation and happen to be near Greensboro. Drop me a line if you want to see if we can arrange something.
