I'm off to N.Y.C. until mid. October, but I wanted to touch base before leaving Texas!
Circle the dates!
November 19th stop by the Elephant Room on Congress Ave. in Austin, to hear the Suzi Stern Quintet.
John Mills sax, John Fremgen Bass, Rob Kazenel drums and Rich Harney piano.
Looking ahead to our yearly musical tribute to the season, mark your calendars for the annual performance of the Dylan Thomas Classic, A Child's Christmas in Whales...note a new location this year!
December 11th (Friday night) we will be doing our version of Dylan Thomas' A CHILD'S CHRISTMAS IN WALES at St David's Church, downtown Austin.
The Harry Ransom Center has a new director and has decided NOT to host us this year.
Please mark this date! It may be our only opportunity to present this program publicly.
More information will be coming soon!
Alex Coke plays all sorts of magical wind instruments and musical toys, Rich Harney plays piano, Buddy Mohmed is on acoustic Bass and yours truly, Suzi Stern sings and recites the sparkling text by Thomas. I have composed several tunes inspired by the text that are woven throughout the reading...it's always a fun and inspiring event, so mark your calendars and hope to see you there!
