Community

After three memorable performances with Eubo and The choir of Clare College Cambridge, I'm now heading back to Canada for another concert as well as a bit of downtime.

Arriving in town with the knowledge that all of your best buds will be at the hotel bar is something I don't experience often enough.

Peace and Reconciliation

Though I cherish another opportunity to play with such a fantastic group, the presentation of three works on the program have given me cause for concern.
