Wow, it has been a long time since I have blogged!
I've been very busy this spring, especially with chamber music performances and competitions. I participated in the Discover Chamber Competition and the Rembrandt Chamber Competition with my woodwind quintet, and my trio and my quintet played in three soirees at Ravinia.
I really enjoy playing in my woodwind quintet, Calcetinos Vivos. They are very nice and very talented musicians. Here's a picture of us:
Some of the pieces we've played this year are Arnold's Three Shanties, a quintet by Klughardt, and Paquito d'Rivera's Aires Tropicales.
I also play in a piano, clarinet, and viola trio. We still haven't given our group a name yet. My brother Ari plays viola, and we play with a 7th grade pianist named Finley. We have been working on the Schumann Trio and the Bruch Eight Pieces. This is a really fun group too. Here is a link to us playing the first movement of the Schumann:
May is a busy month. There are of performances for my orchestra and wind symphony and my chamber groups.
