Performing

performing with Alex Beyer and Eric Jacobsen
Jose Feliciano paid me the greatest compliment in saying that my sound was that of a singer.  From a singer like Jose that is high praise indeed!
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.
with my good friend, and former rival
after a long layoff (note the tan) I return to performing.
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 Yuval Waldman, my friend and teacher
conducting at Yale with the YSE
playing with the trumpet diva Louise Barranger
(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
