Congratulations to RICHARD BROOKS, whose Coeur di Lion, Mon Coeur was performed by lark ascending at the Austrian Cultural Forum earlier this week.

NOAH HAVERKAMP-FRERE is joining the Brooklyn Emerging Artists at NY Citi Theatre and Media at 1462 Southern Boulevard in the Bronx on April 26 for a new music concert (there may be a little rock-and-roll thrown in as well). Noah will have one or two compositions performed, and will improvise at the piano as well. The Brooklyn Emerging Artists group is a group of, well, emerging artists living in Brookln! The festivities get underway at 7pm.
EUGENE MARLOW, NYCC’s Director, Media Relations and Membership Coordinator, reports he is a recipient of a travel scholarship to attend the June 11-14, 2008 National Performing Arts Convention in Denver, Colorado. He says, “Together with some funding from Baruch College, I think I have my expenses covered. Of greater importance, I will attend this convention wearing two hats: officially, as senior co-chair of the Milt Hinton Jazz Perspectives concert series at Baruch (how do we attract more students to our concerts?) and as a member of the NY Composers Circle.” If anyone has a comment they would like to pass along to Gene, he invites some feedback. “The focus of the convention is essentially building audiences for the arts. What issues should I have in mind while I travel through the convention meetings? The classical world will be there.”
JOSEPH PEHRSON‘s Spinner can be watched (and listened to!) on YouTube. The performance is at the Moscow Performers Union from March. Head to:
