Thanks for the updates, Alan! I love the website looks and sounds great. I am glad to hear that you are keeping busy and happy with "retirement." Life in NC continues to be great. I keep in touch with Sally, Barbara Baker and Kathy Rodeffer. So, I generally know about happenings in PG County, still. It is hard to believe that it has been 8 years since I moved!

Stay well and I look forward to staying in touch through this site!

Hi Alan.
Great to hear from you! Yes - I am still in NC. You can see what all I am doing on my website - and my blog

Life is good and we are cooking along. Yes - I am playing the NS instruments at this time. I love them. The one in the photo is the CR series and it is awesome. I also have the Wav violin by NSDesign and it plays great, too and only costs around $600.00. It plays way better than the price.

I am still playing and conducting a great deal and just got home from the national ASTA conference in Atlanta. I am soloing with the Carolina Cool Jazz Orchestra in Spartanburg next weekend. Life is busy. what is up with you? I look forward to hearing from you. I was just telling someone about a wedding gig that I played with you many years ago. The conversation was about Klezmer music and you came to mind.

Again, great to be connected through this site!
