Super Fun Concert Time with Fisher Price!

OK, that’s not the title of the concert – it’s actually Pandora’s Box, the season opener for the Toy Piano Composers.  And it’s going to be an amazingly imaginative concert focusing on invented instruments and other oddities (including, in fact, a Fisher Price toddler toy in Elisha Denburg‘s Fisher Price Laugh & Learn Fun with Friends Musical Table).

Also featured will be works by guest composer’s Anthony T. Marasco, Jason Doell, and TPC regulars Daniel Brophy, Monica Pearce, and Fiona Ryan.

Concert takes place this Sat, Sep 20 at The Music Gallery (197 John St) - click here to buy tickets!

#AudienceDevelopment – A New (Haven) Concert project

I got a nice email from a former classmate, David Perry, who went on to study clarinet at the Yale School of Music.

He is trying a new project, that in addition to creating a relaxed concert environment, has a very important educational aspect.

In David’s words:

“This is an effort to combine the arts of performance and teaching all into one concert.  What we do is contract different ensembles, all professionals, to come and give a concert at The English Building Market in downtown New Haven.  The unique thing is that each ensemble will also do some teaching right before their concert starts, because there will be a group of local music students opening the show for them…

…This is a vision for the future of music whereby each performance advocates for music education in schools”

What do you do? More importantly, why do you do it?

Oftentimes in this modern world, it can be difficult to gather the energy to face the day.  An onslaught of news, not-so-happy people on public transit, the realization of how much needs to get done to be a productive member of society – all of this can be a lot to take in.

And so, what I’ve learned over the summer is that reading books, especially books that inspire, can be a wonderful way of switching one’s own mindset to a more positive light.

And I don’t mean book as escapism – that is a fine activity as well.  I mean books that challenge you to think about your everyday life, to take time and consider every nuance of every decision throughout the day (it’s been said that life is just a series of decisions – you might as well choose as correctly as you can).

One such book that I recently read was called ‘START WITH WHY’ by Simon Sinek.  An amazing book, Sinek looks at certain companies and historical figures to discover why some rise above the top, despite having exactly the same resources as everyone else.  The simplified answer?  They figure out WHY they do what they do, not just what or how.  They discover their meaning, their cause.

Truly an inspiring read, I won’t give any more away.  Click here for the website.

And here is the video that has spread like wildfire:
