On Monday I had the privelege of dong a WQXR live chat hosted by the lovely Olivia Giovetti. Joining me was fellow Asphalt and SIGNAL flutist Jessica Schmitz, and the busy violist and composer Ljova Zhurbin.We talked of the upcoming opening concert for the Rite of Summer Festival this Saturday on Governor’s Island, and about the recent burst of outdoor free summer concerts. It was my first time participating in a Live Chat session, and I had a lot of fun. Read the full chat here.
Jessica, Ljova and I will all be participating in a massive 40 member production of Terry Riley’s In C on Saturday at Governor’s Island at 1pm and again at 3pm. Join some of NYC’s hippest musicians, led by piano impresario Jed Distler, for a FREE performance of a pinnacle work of Minimalism.
