I brought percussionist Al Cerulo and cellist Aliya Ultan to the Vineyard for a couple of concerts in July of 2020 and we had a lovely time. Al premiers works internationally by modern classical composers such as Jude Traxler, Paula Matthusen, and Randy Gibson, while Aliya Ultan is an up and coming avant guard performer and composer in NYC. We got to play acoustically at the Chappaquiddick Community Center and were absolutely delighted with the sound. Thanks to all who came, it was magical. I have been visiting Chappaquiddick Island since 1987, and my brother is buried in the New Chappaquiddick Cemetery. Here's us in my backyard!
I'll be back on the island labor day weekend for lovely evening of dinner and music as part of the Bannerman Castle Island Trust fundraising for their arts programming. I am thrilled to take my harp back on the boat and up the mountain!
