I saw Joker while I was up in Portland! I loved every second. Jaw dropping. Heath Ledger would have been proud.

Hollywood Bowl

There's an increasing abundance of string ensembles in the world that put tremendous focus on presentation moreso than substance. We all know there is no shortage of faux-linists in this world who can barely eek out a tune, yet who can flip their hair like there's no tomorrow.
*
In that vein, more than a few colleagues in the music industry have suggested to me (either obliquely or quite directly) that hiring beautiful people was seemingly Concert Talent's primary criteria.
*
I take great umbrage with such suggestions. My whole life--damn near half a century--has been devoted first and foremost to _music_...and I mean that in the purest sense.
*
I see music as a kind of powerful ceremony--where really the point isn't the notes in and of themselves, but the result of those notes: a kind of evocation...the induction of transcendence, of instant community enabled by the skill and charisma of the artist. All to say: for me, an entertaining performance is a kind of religious experience.
*
Artists and audiences alike get out of a concert what they put into it. And if the artistry is superficial--so, too, will be the result.
*
Hence: my first criteria in hiring is: can you give of yourself in service to the audience?
*
I have found, invariably, those who practice hardest and smartest, who approach their craft with real earnestness and humility--with a desire to give--are most likely to trigger those transcendent moments on stage.
*
_I_ am humbled by the skill each of our collaborating artists has cultivated in his or her own lifetime. The dedication of everyone we work with, have ever worked with, is unparalleled and profound.
*
Any notion such real spirit can't also be charismatic in its _presentational_ aspect--that serious musical gifts and entertainment cannot be intertwined--is hogwash.
*
Trust: whether specialists or generalists, everybody in this ensemble is, musically, in one way or another la crème de la crème...a complete musician...a stone cold killer when it comes to wielding their axe.
*
And I tell ya: ain't easy keeping up--especially when, every day, I have less and less hair of my own to flip.

Hollywood Bowl

Our tiny but mighty string orchestra just played a sold out show at LA's most glamorous and storied venue--The Hollywood Bowl...for legendary multi-Grammy winning superstar of Latin music, Marco Antonio Solis @marcoantoniosolis_oficial . Our ensemble included some of the most excellent instrumentalists in Los Angeles--including virtuoso violinist Heidi Hatch @moltoviolino , one of the contending concertmasters of the Bowl's resident orchestra.
*
The concert was definitely one of the highlights of our work together with Maestro Solis over the past decade.
*
The evening included a gorgeous and string rich tribute of "La Nave del Olvido"...by Jose Jose, aka "El Principe de la Cancion" of Mexico--who moved on to join the grand choir of great singers in the sky little over a week ago. (Sinatra once attempted to record a duet and a full album with Jose Jose...under old Blue Eyes' label, Reprise.)
*
We're super grateful to the entire MAS team for this memorable opportunity...and for this milestone in our performance history, sharing a dream of a stage with an ensemble full of radically accomplished musicians.

Singer, violinist, and pianist Bonnie Brooksbank @shakeyobonbon shaking things up at a party during Artwalk in downtown LA--for unveiling the commercial renovation of one of the city's many historic architectural treasures.
*
Our client, who'd booked #concerttalent artists for numerous private events, requested we deliver the same level of engagement to celebrate this pivotal introduction of a multi-year / multi-million dollar development and raise early interest in the project.
*
Bonnie--like all of our amazing artists--performs at a level of professionalism and virtuosic skill as an entertainer that's unmatched in this context. DJ's are awesome...but live music takes your special occasion to a whole 'nother evel and creates memories that last loooong after the night is over.
*
Thanks, Bonnie...for rockin' so well. (Her signature moves seen here turning a hot tub into an impromptu stage. :-)

Big 4 Restaurant

Sean Bradley @seanbradleyofficial ( president of @concerttalent ) visiting with Charith Premawardhana @charithp ( founder of Classical Revolution @classicalrevolution ).
*
Charith is arguably the most connected person in classical music--and responsible for a nationwide network of fine musicians giving countless casual chamber music concerts in non-traditional venues. A real grassroots advocate for the art...
*
Having known each other for years, it was the first time we've met in person.
*
We enjoyed an excellent California cab, perfectly prepared filet mignon, and frank talk about the state of the art, contracting orchestral musicians for big rock acts, life in the Bay Area, and the many challenges today's freelance musicians face in their personal relationships. At The Big 4 restaurant in San Francisco's Nob Hill district--a wonderfully old school joint with live piano music--made for strategizing about ambitious initiatives in classical music.
