New projects:

I will have a new recording coming out soon - probably late spring 2019 - entitled Confluence.  This is a core band of celtic harpist David Michael, tabla and esraj player Benjy Wertheimer and myself on oboe, English horn, ocarina and native flute .  There are featured artists on this recording including guitar -  Michael Mandrell, sarod - Richard Russell, bassoon -  Mark Eubanks, bansuri - Steve Gorn, and bass - Sean Frenette.

I had the wonderful opportunity to work on Linda Yapp's new children's release entitled A New Day.  It is a wonderful recording of new and traditional songs. I played ocarina, English horn, oboe and even a little penny whistle! We are starting to work on a new one this spring.

I have been working on tracks for a beautiful new project with Philadelphia area composer/pianist Louis deLise.  I will keep you posted as to when that will come out as well.  It is a real pleasure to work with him.  Very exquisite music!

I am also completing work on a recording with Salem MA pianist Ann Sweeten, which should come out this summer or late spring.

This coming April 2019 -  I have been invited to perform at the Ocarina Festival in Budrio, Italy.  I will share details as they become available.  So excited!  

AND in case you would love to support a school performance!!!

SURPRISE & WONDER -- These delightful workshops are a huge hit at elementary schools both public and private as well as community centers and libraries.  If you know a school that you would like this to happen at please let me know.  Perhaps you can help underwrite the costs with friends as that always seems to be the biggest obstacle for schools at this time.

OBOE/ENGLISH HORN/OCARINA & COMPOSITION SESSION WORK -- Would you love to have the sound of my instruments on your next release?  Perhaps you would like to commission an original piece?  I am available for hire and can record at my studio.  It's a great way to get exceptional professional playing or a beautiful new original piece on your recording. 

MUSIC BUSINESS CONSULTS --  So many musicians have questions about recording, performing, practicing etc.. and I offer consults via Skype, by phone or in person.  "For years colleagues have called upon me for help with their music careers due to my networking, marketing, and creative experience." 

OCARINA/OBOE/ENGLISH HORN LESSONS -- I am also available in person and/or online via Skype!  This is a great way to get pointers on technique, practicing, improvising, recording, performing and musicianship.

THANKS for Supporting Live and Recorded Music!  Gratefully,  Nancy
