The Winter concert season is rapidly approaching although the leaves are still hanging tightly onto the trees and my fuschias are still blooming!  I have lots of concert dates to announce here so please take a moment to see if any are near to where you or your friends live.  Hope to see you at an upcoming performance. The ticket, times and links are all listed on my concert and events page.

I am happy to once again be performing Holiday concerts with Eric Tingstad.  We have 10 Holiday Shows this year throughout Washington State (Snohomish, Seattle, Bellevue, Mt. Vernon, Leavenworth, Prosser, Yakima, Olympia & Langley) - many of which have become traditions in and of themselves! They will be starting the Saturday after Thanksgiving in Snohomish! Please get your tickets early as most of them sell out.  All of our CDs are available via the major music outlets for downloading and there are still a few hard copies of things left if you contact me, I can let you know what we still have :)

I will also be doing two Confluence shows in Oregon with the Confluence Trio - Sunday, Dec 1 in Portland & Monday, Dec 2 in Corvallis.  We will be performing music from the new CD entitled Confluence.  The trio is comprised of -  David Michael (Celtic harp), Benjy Wertheimer (tabla and esraj) and myself ( oboe, English horn, double alto and tenor ocarinas and Native flute ).   Here is the link for purchasing a hard copy or download at cdbaby!   https://store.cdbaby.com/cd/nancyrumbel   It is also available on all the major streaming platforms.

I played on two tracks for a beautiful new project of Philadelphia area composer/pianist Louis deLise called Natural Light. It is a real pleasure to work with him.  Very exquisite music!  https://www.amazon.com/Natural-Light-Louis-Anthony-deLise/dp/B07Q18DMFN

I just finished my tracks for a new project with Linda Yapp.  Her new children's release has yet to be titled. It is a wonderful recording of new and traditional songs. I played tenor ocarina, English horn, oboe, melodica, tin whistle and even a little Native flute! Her songs are so inspiring and fun! I have likened her to a combination of part Mr. Rogers, part Pete Seeger and a bit of magic!!  The amazing Charles Brotman is mixing and performing on the CD as well.  I will let you know when it is out!

If you have questions just email me at Nancy@NancyRumbel.com    The concert information is listed on the Concerts & Events page here on my website or will be posted there soon. Thanks!

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. 

THANKS for Supporting Live and Recorded Music!  Gratefully,  Nancy
