Happy Sunday. It’s June and we are halfway through 2017. Wow! I am attending the International Katarzyna Myćka Marimba Academy in Arcata, CA. The faculty includes Jean Geoffroy, Katarzyna Myćka, Juan David Forero, and Andreas Boettger. The week is full of lessons, masterclasses and concerts. Last night’s faculty concert was an unforgettable experience. Jean Geoffroy’s performance of J.S. Bach’s Chaconne was magical and I am glad I was in the audience to experience that performance. What summer programs are you attending? Leave a comment below and let me know. Here are some articles to check out. Enjoy and let me know what you are reading.
