I have a few videos on You Tube, including this one of "Louisiana Serenade", in which Arturo joins me with the sweetest clarinet playing east of the Mississippi. This video (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6XWjViDQuR0) features the wonderful "Grand Central Station", written by Mary Chapin Carpenter in response to the 9/11 attacks on New York City. I'm joined by my pianist Glenn Mehrbach, and bassist Robbie Link.
One of my all-time idols, Paul Simon, recently appeared at the Durham Performing Arts Center, and my husband and I were lucky enough to get tickets (front row, first balcony no less!) Here's my review of the concert, which was posted on the Durham Magazine Blog. If you're so moved, please write a comment about the article--maybe they'll ask me to write more if they know I have fans out there reading. Still Amazing After All These Years
One of the things I've always loved about Durham is being able to attend minor league baseball via The Durham Bulls. Every year, they hold open auditions for a chance to sing the National Anthem before a game. This March, I went, and wrote a piece about my experience, which was picked up by Durham Magazine. Read it on their blog, and Go Bulls!
Listening to NPR's "Piano Puzzler" is one of my favorite activities, and in December 2011, I was really happy to be a guest contestant. It's a game show, hosted by Fred Child, with music provided by Bruce Adolphe. Bruce plays a popular tune in the style of a classical composer, and the contestant has to guess both parts. Listen to my appearance here--just look for the episode dated 12/21/11. Great fun! Thanks, Piano Puzzler!
