Part-timer love

Few professional musicians, of course, make a living performing. A lot of my colleagues teach private lessons or instruct at the primary, secondary, or university level (and sometimes all of them); others are music critics or music librarians or music administrators. Then there’s my crowd, the people with a whole other non-musical career. I hold body and soul together, and work my left brain out between engagements, working as a software developer and data analyst here in Washington. It is a challenging balance to maintain, but it is rarely boring. The Washington Post printed a nice glimpse into the life with its feature this week on my friend and colleague Jason Rylander, a Baroque-specialist tenor whose other career is in the law (and not only the law, but one of those cool jobs you thought only existed in the movies). Reading his dossier, I feel positively slothful.

Also in the Post this week, a review of Cantate’s Curlew River. I’m immensely proud of my part in this production.

Curlew River in the Post's Spring Preview

Anne Midgette’s spring preview of the DC classical music scene includes a nice blurb for Cantate Chamber Singers’ March 23 presentation of Curlew River, where I’m one of the featured soloists.
