So excited to have finished my second run as music director for the University of Michigan Gilbert and Sullivan Society! Our Fall 2015 production was “Patience (or, Bunthorne’s Bride).”

Please enjoy these pictures from the show and Friday night’s afterglow!

NYC

Was in New York for a few days earlier this year. Had to explore the city a bit while I was there! Enjoy some pics from the Jewish Museum, the Guggenheim, Central Park, and the American Museum of Natural History:

 

New Piano

Just cashed in two savings bonds to help defray the cost of my beautiful new Essex grand piano. Thank you, Papa (my grandfather, David Donner z”l) and Dr. Hubbard for making this investment in me 29 years ago. I couldn’t be happier with this purchase–here’s to a lifetime of Beethoven, Brahms, Bach, Gershwin, and Schubert in my very own space, at last.
