Rambles of Winter: January 2013

THE RAMBLES OF WINTER
With January snow flurries comes a flurry of harp playing.
Amidst my continuing orchestra season with Guelph, Oakville and Kingston Symphonies, I have two upcoming solo concerts in the Perth/Ottawa region in January, and two harp & flute concerts in February in the Hamilton area. (see below).
Photos and chatterings continue to appear on my Harp Rambling and Listening to the Inbetween blogs!
And Susan (Piltch) has been busy creating YouTube videos for our pieces Anticipation and Reflection from our CD Anticipation!
Wishing you all beauty and gentleness for the coming new year.
