  1. Legendary jazz composer/arranger Sammy Nestico turned 90 yesterday. Read all about him and the celebration HERE Happy Birthday Sammy!
  2. Yeah, and Robin Hood's heart was in the right place too, huh?
  3. Nice review, guy. I appreciate your taking the time to share. Musically, I believe that the ballad is the emotional climax of the show, and it might prove to be one of the most beautiful moments of this drum corps season. As far as the dialogue, it's straight out of the source material; Phillip Glass's "Einstein on the Beach". Enjoy the rest of the season!
  4. I would so love to do this....if I hadn't aged out in 1978.
  5. Preying on desperate kids who just want to march for your personal gain? Shame on you.
  6. You're right. Let me right this wrong. Les préludes has been played by numerous corps, including The Cavaliers and Southwind. In 1974 it was performed by both Phantom Regiment and Velvet Knights. Phantom Regiment has played John Corigliano TWICE over the past few years. Corps too numerous to mention have played Beethoven. Thank you for paying attention.
  7. The San Diego Symphony has a very special program coming up in early April. Renowned percussionist DAME EVELYN GLENNIE will be performing John Corigliano's percussion concerto, CONJURER, with the San Diego Symphony. The weekend will start out on Thursday, April 7th at 7:30 pm with a SYMPHONY EXPOSED program focusing entirely on the Corigliano piece. Join host Nuvi Mehta, the composer and performer as they analyze the piece in-depth and perform it as well. Then on Friday, April 8th at 7:30 pm and Sunday, April 10th at 2:00 pm the Corigliano piece will be performed in the Symphony's JACOBS MASTERWORKS CONCERT along with Beethoven's 2nd Symphony and Franz Liszt's Les préludes. This will be a very exciting you DON'T want to miss!
  8. Delta Airlines is extremely excited that Spirit has flown back to Atlanta! See their
  9. Working at the San Diego Symphony, I take time away from my desk to listen to the orchestra whenever I can. This morning, while watching a rehearsal for Richard Strauss' Ein Heldenleben (A Hero's Life) I sat upright in my chair, hearing the opening fanfare from Phantom Regiment's 2008 Spartacus pre-show. Can't wait to hear it three more times this weekend!
  10. I sure hope that there's some SOUTHERN California in that tour....
