Summer is officially here! If you missed us at the Chelsea Music Festival this June you will have to wait until September when we reconvene for two concerts in Mount Gretna, PA. We’re very excited to return to Gretna, this time performing with pianist Charles Abramovic, guitarist and composer Allen Krantz, and the fabulous Daedalus Quartet. For more information, please visit Gretna Music. In the mean time, we’ll all be keeping busy with various independent projects and performances. Keep reading for more about our summer plans.
