Minnesota Orchestra

In a few hours, I’m leaving for Minneapolis. Andrew Litton is doing the original orchestra version of “Redline Tango” with the Minnesota Orchestra this weekend. I’m pretty excited about it. The orchestra is financially strapped, so I have to pay my own way to attend this concert (and that’s turning out to be a much more expensive 36 hours than I expected), but it’ll be great to work with Maestro Litton again, and hear this fantastic “band” play my piece.

I haven’t been in Minneapolis since the end of my “Music Alive” residency with the Greater Twin Cities Youth Symphony, so I’m looking forward to going back. I’m especially excited about having dinner tonight at the downtown Chipotle.
