“Tooting my own horn”

I sometimes share my performance schedule with students in case there is an opportunity to see a live concert. Here is a list of some of the performances I was involved with over the fall and winter and a list of upcoming engagements. I feel very fortunate to have so many opportunities to perform with such wonderful ensembles and musicians in the Chicago area. These experiences enhance my ability to convey musical relevance to my many wonderful students at the Music Institute of Chicago.
