Two Divas in Three weeks!!!!

Wednesday, November 27th, 2013

What are the odds of spending time with two of your favorite singers in the span of 3 weeks and having the sheer pleasure of experiencing the real person enjoying their passion???  It’s extremely rare as are these two amazing Opera Goddesses!!!!

My first encounter with both happened in 2011: Ms. Denyce Graves and Ms. Renée Fleming.  And now in the span of 3 weeks, back in DC, here we are again in 2013.

October 2013 With Ms. Denyce Graves

Music & Wine at The University Club – 9/10/13

Monday, August 19th, 2013

My past life in the music business on both sides – - radio, retail promotion and marketing as well as wining a “Grammy” as a singer with Arrested Development – - has afforded me the joy and heartaches of experiencing both sides of the musical coin.  Leaving the music industry to focus on the artistry found in wine and food created an opportunity for me to assist fellow musician in their pursuit of  rewarding careers in musical performance.  For the past seven years my focus has been with Young Concert Artists.  YCA, is an amazing organization which nurtures and provides a platform for extraordinary young classical artists to be groomed and heard by major management and recording companies.  If you have not heard of, or had the opportunity to experience YCA, I invite you to join me on September 10th at 6:30 p.m. at the University Club on 16th Street in Washington DC to hear a wonderful performance by a brilliant violinist and enjoy a wine tasting as our “Kick Off” event for the upcoming season.  Please see below details of the event.  It would be great to see you and to welcome you to experience YCA.

Cheers, to great Music & Wine!!!!

Ran Dank

Saturday, November 5th, 2011

With Ran Dank & Anthony DiResta

Tuesday night, 11/01/11, I had the pleasure of hearing Ran Dank at the Embassy of Israel and found his performance to be an extension of his deep passion for life and all things intellectual.  His interpretation of the Beethoven Hammerklavier was very penetrating. I first heard Ran during the YCA finals in 2009 and am pleased to see his continued drive and success paying off.   This performance was presented by The Embassy Series.

Off to New York for the YCA finals next Saturday.  Join me and be the first to hear the next amazing discovery!!!
