2017 flew by…literally. Wait, 2017 was ages ago. You're probably asking why I am posting this in March, right? 🤔
Two reasons. One, there are technically two New Years — the Western holiday that takes place on January 1, which makes this post extremely late. But, then there's the Lunar New Year (Happy Year of the Dog!), which was on February 16, so that technically means, I'm late...but I can at least redeem myself because it was only 3 weeks ago. Clever, I know. I also figure my well-wishes are better late than never and everyone deserves to be shown gratitude. For those of you who didn't receive my well-wishes through my newsletter, this one is for you.
In 12 months, Vincenzo (my cello) and I had the pleasure of traveling and performing in 32 cities, 11 States, 7 countries, and 3 continents. Not only did we make countless memories and explore new musical languages, we also made empowering friendships, excitedly mentored the next generation of young artists, engaged in very thought-provoking and inspiring conversations about the future of the arts, and explored different cultures through exquisite culinary delights — all through music.
Your presence and support have been overwhelming, thank you. As we fly through 2018, I wish you great health, bountiful waves of music, and happiness with loved ones!
With love and gratitude,
