Tom Emerson Photography

This past weekend, I played six performances of Magnus Lindberg’s craggy and forbidding (and insectile) Clarinet Quintet with my colleagues of Third Angle New Music (with the magnificent Louis DeMartino on clarinet) at Alvar Aalto’s magnificent library at Mount Angel Abbey. The reviews were glowing, and equally glowing are the photos that ¬†photographer/architect Tom Emerson delivered from the event – take a peek in the slideshow here.


allclassical’s new digs – preview coming soon

I was given a rare opportunity to tour the partially completed studios of Portland’s beloved classical music station, Allclassical FM 89.9, with CEO Jack Allen, Program Director John Pittman and Edmund Stone, the host of the nationally syndicated film music show produced at Allclassical, The Score. I’m working on a feature post that should go up this coming Tuesday morning. I’m excited to tell you what’s going on down by the river at the Hampton Opera Center building, where KQAC will relocate this June. For now, a photo of the plans of the new station.

You can view floor plans and renderings at¬†Allclassical’s web page about the move, and learn more about their capital campaign.

More to come…
