"The Late Great Quartets"

 

Dear Friends,

it is with great pleasure that we invite you to a special String Quartet Concert, featuring some of the greatest works of chamber music ever written.

The quartet features the musicians:

Dominika Dancewicz - violin
Juliette Javaheri - violin
Dawson White - viola
Patrick Moore - cello

We're very excited to treat you to our debut performance at the University of St. Thomas, Cullen Hall on Sunday, November 4, at 1pm. 

This performance is sponsored by University of St. Thomas Music Department and Music Preparatory School and will be held in the early afternoon - just in time for you to enjoy fantastic music after your Sunday morning activities.

Our program will feature the powerful String Quartet No.3 by Dmitri Shostakovich called by the composer himself "The War Quartet", a movement of mature String Quartet No.23 by W.A. Mozart, and Felix Mendelssohn-Bartholdy's tumultuous String Quartet No.6 op.80 - the last piece he wrote before his untimely death. 

As always, you will learn more about the context of this powerful, passionate and highly narrative music as we present a short talk before each piece.
Be sure to bring friends and family to share this event with you!

The concert does not require tickets, however we will accept love donations at the door (suggested $15-$20).
Parking is available at UST garage at Graustark and W Alabama or free parking on the streets.
Please, refer to the attached poster for more detail and information.

We look forward to seeing you there!
Please RSVP on Facebook here.

Lone Star College - Tomball

Today I'm happy to announce that I will be teaching violin and viola as an Adjunct Professor of Strings at Lone Star College - Tomball as well as an early Music Theory class for non-music majors entitled Music Fundamentals. This is an incredible opportunity to start a string program in an area where it is needed. I will have many opportunities to perform on Faculty Recitals and other events around campus. Be looking for more resources on the Instruction page as I help music majors at the college navigate the beginnings of their careers. Feel free to contact me if you or someone you know would be interested in becoming a music major at Lone Star Tomball, there are some very exciting things happening there. Also, check out my calendar from time to time for concerts and events that are open to the public. (Photo courtesy of Lone Star Tomball website http://www.lonestar.edu/tomball-pac.htm)

Diplomas!

 

After six years of intensive study, I can now see both of my diplomas at the same time. It's a really great feeling to see the product of my hard work and sacrifices solidified on a piece of paper. The act of going to college is one that I highly admire and truly believe in. Many of my business and musical connections were cultivated at these two oustanding institutions and I thank them for these diplomas and how it will shape my future. 

Cheers to higher education!
