Announcing Ironwood Quartet

Ironwood, Ottawa's new "take-no-prisoners" string quartet, plays for the first time under the new moniker on Sunday, December 13th, 5pm, at The Record Centre.

Ironwood is Jessica Linnebach and Carissa Klopoushak (violins), Julia MacLaine (cello), and David Marks (viola), a quartet of curious musicians who spend most (but not all) of their musical time playing with the NAC orchestra.

Toronto Summer Music Festival: Thursday, July 24, 2014

I'm very pleased to be performing as part of the Toronto Summer Music Festival's Shuffle Concert series next week.  The Shuffle series, inspired by the mix of music you'd typically find on an iPod, are informal, eclectic one-hour performances by Festival Artists, special guests, and next-generation emerging artists. I'll be joined by my friends Alexandru Sura (cimbalom) and JC Lizotte (cello), playing Eastern European Folk Music (mostly Ukrainian).  We'll finish the program with a new arrangement of Ravel's Tzigane.  Looking forward to seeing you there!

Ritornello 2014

This past weekend, the 6th Annual Ritornello Chamber Music Festival took place in Saskatoon.  Ritornello Fest is the annual festival that my co-director Jacqueline Woods and I founded, which showcases exciting, Canadian musicians who are currently pursuing professional careers across the country and around the globe.  This year's Fest featured the Cecilia String Quartet, pianist Philip Chiu, and cellist Scott McKnight performing alongside the two directors.  Saturday's concert also featured a Saskatoon poet, Brendan Flaherty.  Here are a few photos of the festival, taken by Michael Morien.  To see all the high-res photos, check out our Flickr.com Slideshow. ritornello 2014-68
