The summer months were busy for me as I went from Norfolk, CT to Woodstock, NY to Maui to Annandale-on-Hudson. September 23 I’ll be at Wake Forest University in Winston-Salem, NC. I’m putting the finishing touches on a work based on a poem by Pablo Neruda for Six Perspectives of Latin America: Homage to Pablo Neruda featuring myself and Eliot Fisk. The program will also include the premieres of Javier Farías “Geografía de un Canto” for solo guitar (Eliot), and “Cortada fue la Tierra” for two guitars. Brendle Recital Hall - SFAC 7:30 p.m. Free and open to the public. For more information call (336)-758-5026.
Following North Carolina it’s back to the old country September 27-28 and Les Internationales de la Guitare in Montpellier, France.

Under the direction of composer Martin Bresnick, Norfolk's acclaimed New Music Workshop invites composers and instrumentalists to study the dynamics of taking a piece from a composer's imagination to the performance hall. The 2014 Workshop focuses on new music for guitar and ensembles. The Workshop culminates in a performance featuring guitar virtuosi and composers Benjamin Verdery and Van Stiefel, pianist Lisa Moore and the Norfolk Contemporary Ensemble led by conductor Julian Pellicano.
