Next Tuesday morning, I’m leaving East Lansing and heading south to Athens, Georgia for the North American Saxophone Alliance Biennial Conference. They claim to have been NASA before NASA was NASA, but I don’t believe it. Anyway, the H2 saxophone quartet will be playing my piece, Falling up the down escalator. Hopefully, they’ll also have copies of their new CD, Times and Spaces, on which they’ve recorded some really excellent new saxophone music, including my piece. I’ll also be there with a few composer friends, Sam Merciers, Nate Bliton, and Phillip Sink. We’ll have an exhibit booth, and we’ll be selling our scores there. Look for Folio Publishing Cooperative.
I’m looking forward to the conference and the performances and the networking, but more than that, I’m looking forward to a little pseudo-vacation from the frozen hinterland.
