On Friday January 30th I'm thrilled to be presenting a full evening of music composed and arranged for Neijing Ensemble. This group began as an opportunity for me to compose music for Sax Quartet featuring Neil Welch, Levi Gillis, Greg Sinibaldi and myself.
On this performance I've expanded the ensemble to include not one, not two, but THREE acoustic basses! Carmen Rothwell, Abbey Blackwell and John Teske will join us for some music. We'll be playing a widely varying set of music comprised of :
- American Folk Songs - arranged by myself, Levi Gillis, and Luciano Berio which will feature the marvelous voice of Katie Jacobson
- An Alban Berg String Quartet - arranged by Greg Sinibaldi
- Original compositions of mine.
I'm sincerely grateful for the opportunity to work with so many incredible musicians. They provide me with an immense amount of inspiration and joy.
