Summer endeavors brought new ideas to old connections and exciting energy to new experiments! Now, I'm looking ahead to a Fall filled with more unconventional projects and cool collaborations. Hope to see you in person or online!
Make Music Boston kicked off the summer with a bang! The Boston Globe blew me away with their preview article and I'm so thankful for everyone who helped out!
July brought travels to Sweden, Norway, Germany and Poland for work and play. Angela, Anna, Sanna and I created Quartet Kalos, after a successful and very special Double It tour. Then, I joined old friends of the Baltic Youth Philharmonic to perform and teach EUROPERA students.
The summer wrapped up with a lecture and discussion at Sebastian Mariscal's architecture studio presenting my works while discussing the need of more music/arts based spaces in Boston.
We're reigniting the Percussive Arts Society Massachusetts Chapter with a day called "The Creative Percussionist." Join us at The Boston Conservatory!
