What an amazing first day of our residency at the Arnold Arboretum in Jamaica Plain, MA. The morning started off right with a preview article in the Boston Globe! I was stoked to speak with the reporter, David, and blown away by his words! Check out the article here: Ensemble Evolution brings treetop sounds to arboretum.
Yesterday, we began the "Open Rehearsal" at 3pm. We didn't expect to many patrons, but were suddenly energized by the large, attentive audience that showed up! We wrote and workshopped a new piece that will be premiered tonight, inspired by the landscape and photos by Adam DeTour. I was so proud to share the stage with Jake and Charles again, and impressed by the trust and confidence we have in each other. It was a special session that kicked this weekend off right! Two of the guests wrote me an email following the session, and their words have put me on cloud nine:
WOW! I cannot wait to make music with such dear, talented friends in my new hometown.
