Today's concert. The kids' eyes especially lit up when we played The William Tell Overture and Star Wars.

Hi Everyone -

Tonight I'll be playing harpsichord with the Santa Barbara Chamber Orchestra at the Lobero Theatre in Santa Barbara, CA. I think this is going to be a great concert:

What Makes It Great? 

Bach's Concerto for Two Violins

Rob Kapilow takes listeners inside the music: first, he unravels, slows down, and reveals key musical passages to discover why they are so extraordinary. After a brief intermission, audience members will have a chance to experience a new-found immersion into the beauty and dynamics that is the genius of Bach's Concerto for Two Violins in full performance. Written in 1730, this concerto is one of the most famous works by J.S. Bach. It is considered to be among the best examples of music written in the late Baroque period. The concerto is characterized by the subtle yet expressive relationship between the two violins throughout the work. 

A lively Q & A will follow immediately after the performance. Great music rewards great listeners, and Rob Kapilow's What Makes It Great? is about great listening. 

The conductor is Rob Kapilow, and you can check out his style of audience engagement here: 

So it should be a lot of fun, if you happen to be in Santa Barbara...

It appears that the tickets are $38 each.

This will play .WAV files (and many other formats not natively supported) on Android, which helps tremendously with music production, esp. when people email you something to listen to.

Just regained access to a bunch of StudioVision Pro files (mostly music I composed and sequenced on my old Mac) using a free emulator from . (The alternative was going to be paying thousands of dollars to have someone convert the files.)
