An Added Benefit

Sorry I haven't written in a while. Can't believe that it has been over a month.The studio has been very busy, and I have been working like one possessed on Timeless II, and having a wonderful time!

As some of you know, on November 12th I will be performing a benefit concert in York, Pennsylvania. Once again I will be sharing the stage with my good friend Greg Maroney, who is one of my very favorite contemporary instrumental composer/pianists. The concert benefits the York College School of Nursing. You can see the poster, with all of the information about the concert, on my Facebook artist page. While you're there, why don't you sign up as a fan?

I have just been asked to play a benefit concert for Millsaps College in Jackson, Mississippi. The concert will take place on November 18th. I have invited Joseph Akins to take part in this concert. Joseph is a fine pianist/composer who is on the faculty of Middle Tennessee State's Music Recording program.

I am excited about the Millsaps concert, because I have never visited the campus before. I know about the college, of course, by its wonderful reputation. Jan and I have visited Jackson on several occasions. Jackson is full of cultural activity; one of our favorite trips anywhere was a visit to Jackson to see a terrific Degas exhibit at the Jackson Museum of Art.
Isn't Leontyne Price from Jackson?

Our concert in Memphis was a lot of fun. Attendance and CD sales were both a little less than I had anticipated, but what the audience lacked in size it made up for in enthusiasm. Jan and I finally visited Graceland! I actually hadn't thought about it, but Jan wanted to go, so off we went. And I have to admit that it was fun. We also had some great BBQ at a Memphis favorite, Rendezvous Alley.

I promise I won't wait a month next time!
