What I'm Doing Now
(This is my now page. You should make one too.)
I’m still smiling from playing with the Kennedy Center Honors Orchestra this past weekend. Ended up performing One Last Time from Hamilton with Lin Manuel Miranda and Alex Lacamoire as well as a Wayne Shorter piece with Renée Fleming. What a weekend!
Next week I will once again be taking the podium at the Kennedy Center to conduct Tuba Christmas! Conducting over 300 tubas and euphoniums for an audience of usually over 1,000 people in the main concert hall is one heck of rush!
I also just found out that I will be joining Alarm Will Sound next month when they perform at New York City’s Winter Jazzfest with some of my musical heroes, Medeski Martin & Wood. I literally can’t stop smiling!
Episode 100 of The Brass Junkies is only a week away! We have a big guest lined up for that episode. We already recorded it and it is easily the most intense interview we’ve done to date. Incredible stuff.
The Entrepreneurial Musician is at 162 episodes and going strong!
What I'm reading: Finally got around to starting Meditations by Marcus Aurelius. It is blowing my mind.
What I'm listening to: Tons of Phish and more Phish. I am a guest on the HF Pod next week and we are discussing perhaps the band’s greatest month, December ‘95. So I’m doing lots of homework! :)
What I'm looking forward to: Playing with MMW!
