Meeting ID: 869 9773 9502

My personal experience as a composer-performer-teacher in the time of Corona. I will summarize some of the musical projects that have occurred for me since the pandemic began. Mostly I will talk about some unexpected compositions, improvisations and collaborations that have come about, often as a silver lining to a strange and strained time to be a musician. Included will be works for solo piano, woodwind quintet and hurdy gurdy.
