On April 12 and 13 I performed Rite of Spring as principal bassoon with Orchestra of St. Luke’s as part of Carolina Performing Arts “Rite at 100″ celebration. These we’re unique and thrilling performances as I was called in last minute when the principal bassoonist had a family emergency and had to leave a few hours before the concert.

On Thursday, February 14th we performed on the Las Vegas Chamber Music Series at UNLV and then again on February 16th at Skidmore College at Zankel Hall. We received a nice review of our Skidmore show.
