The final show of the tour was at the Douglass Street Music Collective in Brooklyn last Friday. Our friend trombonist Matt Plummer is a member of the collective and set up the show for us. As I expected from the many reviews I’ve heard, the space is very nice and is suitable for a wide range of performances.
The music went very well, and I thought we gave our best performances of a couple of my pieces. This last part of the tour was musically a big highlight since it’s very rare that I get the chance to give multiple consecutive performances of the same music with the same group. This to me is the real reward of setting up a tour like this. After the performance I was still left with the desire to continue developing the music. Would love to do another longer tour with this group, perhaps in the Fall of 2011 depending on life circumstances.
Thanks so much for reading. I hope to make a recap post of the tour with some recordings and possibly videos that were shot by Theo Padouvas at our Downtown Music Gallery performance.
