NEWS- Nancy has started practicing and performing again post rotator cuff surgery/recovery. Many thanks to her wonderful Seattle surgeon Dr. E. Edward Khalfayan and her Issaquah Physical Therapist Lori Mock. She's still working on stretches and strengthening - it's a long recovery but doable!!
She gave a new informance presentation at the Leavenworth BirdFest - A Composer's Inspiration - Bird Songs. It was very well received and if you are interested in booking this presentation for a house concert or small lecture series, please contact her at Nancy@NancyRumbel.com
While in Leavenworth she also performed her first Conjunto piece, a long time dream given her San Antonio roots, with young accordionist Leonardo Guerrero and his teacher Jose Lopez playing guitar. She also played a piece with a bell choir for the first time - the amazing Leavenworth Marlin Handbell Ringers. She has aspirations to do more of both!!!
Nancy just finished English horn parts for a new Wayne Gratz project that will be released in the future. Wayne is a wonderful pianist that Nancy collaborated with when they were both signed to Narada.
She has started rehearsals with Eric Tingstad, for some upcoming summer shows in Tillamook OR on July 12 and Bainbridge Island WA at the Bloedel Preserve on August 22. There are future fall shows in Spencer WI, Leavenworth WA and Olympia WA.
