I am so excited and honoured to be premiering a new concerto by Sid Robinovitch for Marimba and Vibraphone with the Manitoba Chamber Orchestra at Westminster United Church on January 12, 2016. With only a week (tomorrow) left until the performance I’m starting to get into that weird space before a big show or audition where you suddenly feel like you have lots to do and also like there is nothing left to do.
A blog post about a workshop on a website that is (for now) all about this workshop. I hope I’m not getting carried away but while I chew my nails through the month of June waiting for registrations to come in I thought I should maybe say a little something about why I started this workshop.
I’m looking forward to seeing Claire Ploughman perform the last movement of Sammut’s concerto for marimba entitled Sugaria. This is both a flashy and sweet piece of music and suits both the marimba and Claire’s talents at the instrument.
