We just finished the 6th concert of our Haydn cycle at the Kitchener-Waterloo Chamber Music Society. 29 down, 14 to go. Our next show is July 14th. KWCMS website here

We got a nice review from the Kitchener-Waterloo record here

X Avant V is happening Oct 16-24. I curated this year\’s festival and I\’m pretty excited about the lineup. I highly recommend the Jeff Mills/Big Zang show on Oct 16 for anyone who is a techno fan, percussion aficionado or anyone with an interest in musique concrete. I heard Jeff do something wondrous strange in Berlin last year. Also, Donatienne Michel-Dansac is performing the complete Aperghis Recitations on the 17th. She is phenomenal. The shows on the 23rd (50-minute ring) and 24th (Halo Ballet) are co-productions with Toca Loca. Complete festival details at musicgallery.org

Blurbs in pitchfork, the Globe and Mail and a strong Book it now! recommendation from NOW Magazine.

I\’m playing with Quatuor Arthur-Leblanc in the Syrinx Salon Concerts on February 6th. Dvorak piano quintet, which should be serious fun. Details here.
