January is a fine time to reflect on the past year, especially when the weather provides some useful home-alone time. Looking back, we’ve had a rather epic year, marked by an array of accomplishments, including a move to Boston. (Lest you think we brought the full force of winter upon ourselves by moving to the northeast, it was this time last year that we were similarly penned in by dangerously cold conditions in Indiana.

Hilary, Neil, and I all really enjoy playing with orchestras both back in our respective sections and in front as soloists.

This is why I get so excited when I read...Read Full Post »

Many of you know that we had the privilege of performing on Spotlight 2012 this past May 7th. If you didn't previously know about Spotlight, it is a night of theater, dance, music, and spoken word performances to raise money for HIV education and prevention.
It. Was. Awesome. Incredible show from over 20 different acts doing what they do best. Words can't describe how much fun we had and how honored we felt to be a part of such an important event.
