I'm pleased to announce some additional upcoming performances of my oboe and English horn duo Mandarin Ducks
. First of all, on June 9th at 2:00 p.m., the indefatigable Oboe Duo Agosto will be playing Mandarin Ducks
at Scranton Library in Madison, CT.
Later that month, they'll be performing it again (on June 25, 2013 at 2:00 p.m.) as part of the 2013 conference of the International Double Reed Society at the University of Redlands, Redlands, CA, as part of their presentation "An Asian-American Connection" which will also feature music by Feng-Hsu Lee and David Macbride.
Next, in July, Oboe Duo Agosto will be performing Mandarin Ducks in Brazil. Specific details are forthcoming. I'm very much looking forward to what will be my South American premiere!
Meanwhile, up-and-coming new music ensemble DAS Oboe will also perform Mandarin Ducks at the Seattle Symphony's Benaroya Hall on July 20, 2013 at 2:00 p.m., as part of the Symphony's Soundbridge series of events. If you can't make that date, they'll repeat the same program on September 22 as part of the Seattle Symphony's Day of Music (further details TBA).
More exciting possibilities are brewing, including some possible new collaborations in the pipeline. Watch this space for further details!
