2015 November Newsletter

The studio masterclass is coming up on Nov. 27. Even if you aren’t playing in the masterclass, come and join us for Christmas games after!

Also be sure to check out the concert on Nov. 28, featuring Dr. Jim Sherry (trumpet) and Bang Lang Do (piano) from the faculty of the University of Dubuque, along with Fort McMurray’s high school and community bands. This is a rare opportunity to hear great wind music!


The masterclass is a chance for myself and my students to perform their works in progress. We are scheduled for Friday, November 27 at 7:30pm-8:30pm, but if you are performing in the masterclass and can’t make this time, please let me know immediately and I will try to accommodate you. The masterclass will be in Suncor Theatre in Holy Trinity High School, which is the same building that UpTown! lessons are held in.

In this informal event (no dress code), students perform their piece and get a mini-lesson on their work so far. Once all performances are finished, we will have some musical games with Christmas tunes, snacks, and prizes. Please let me know if you or your student has any allergies.


I am now offering saxophone lessons – please contact me for details.


Listenings is a series about the music I enjoy. This month’s listening is Benjamin Britten’s cantata Rejoice in the Lamb.
