Performing

One of my favorite concerts.  Here with the pianist Miki Aoki in 2000.  It was our first concert together and we have remained good friends ever since!
Here Miki Aoki and I again several years later after a performance.  We have joked that this looks like a portrait from Valentine's Day.
Thanksgiving - here I am playing for my meal
with my good friend, and former rival
after a long layoff (note the tan) I return to performing.
Playing with Kristin Graves at her new CD release party.   I'd do the gig again just for the guacamole
The most nervous I have ever been.  Performing with a real orchestra of professionals from New York.  My explanation of nerves was because everybody in the violin section, knew the piece better than I did!
with my teacher Yuval Waldman during a break in rehearsal
(left to right) Pete Roe, Michael "Mac" Cooney, Monica Attell Fitzgerald and me.  Red Ties mean that this was Christmas.  If we look bleary, it is because we have played like 4 or 5 masses armed with only sugar and caffeine!
with my dear friend the wonderful soprano Krista Adams Santilli

During a performance that has gone horribly wrong, I decide that only one thing can save this....LADY OF SPAIN!
