I hope you are all doing well!!
I’m excited to let you know about an upcoming show I have as a part of my continuing collaboration with The Chamber Orchestra of Philadelphia. The concert series is called Intersect and we’re beginning our second season of concerts on Wednesday, November 30th at 7pm at The World Cafe Live in Philadelphia.
We’ll be exploring the nature of exoticism in music and the concert will feature Chamber Orchestra timpanist Martha Hitchins, percussionist and vibraphonist Harvey Price, Singer/songwriter and Irish music specialist John Byrne, Bassist Phil D’Agostino, and myself as we perform music by Beethoven, Tchaikovsky, Rossini, Bill Withers, Marvin Gaye, and indigenous music from Egypt, Ireland, and Trinidad.
We’ll also be joined by very special guest and Chamber Orchestra soloist for the December concert series Rami Khalife and his father Marcel Khalife and the evening will culminate in a three way discussion between myself, Rami, and Chamber Orchestra music director Dirk Brosse.
This is sure to be a fun and memorable evening and I do hope to see you there!
