I am giving a recital at Fourth Presbyterian Church in Chicago on January 6, at 12:10 pm. This program will be a shorter, more traditionally classical version of my upcoming Moveable Feast performance. It is free and open to the public.
This Chicago program will feature a veritable travelogue of works, drawing the listener along with me to Tunisia, Naples, and Scotland, along with the wide-open spaces of our own nation. I am also featuring the Bach G Minor Sonata, as a personal home-coming. I grew up hearing and internalizing the complex counterpoint and fugues of J. S Bach, and in many ways his works for a musician – especially an oboist – feel like coming home. It’s a piece that terrifies and thrills me, and I am eager to present it in beautiful and historic Fourth Church.
What Else is Going On?
The full version of A Moveable Feast, starring myself, Paul Hamilton, and cabaret singer Justin Hayford, will be presented on:
January 22nd at 3pm at Valparaiso University. I will soon have repeats of this neat program scheduled in February in South Bend and Chicago.
I am still working on an East Coast Tour of last spring’s CHROMA program, anchored by a performance on:
Sunday, April 29th at 3:00, at Delaware County Community College outside Philadelphia.
I am giving a noontime recital at the Chicago Cultural Center on July 23rd, 2012. I have no idea what will be on it, yet. But we’ll have fun.
