Mahler at the Houston Ballet, returning to Schlossberg

We’re just starting the 2011-2012 season at the Wortham Center with the Houston Ballet and the Houston Grand Opera. Tonight we’ll open with a very unusual ballet piece, Gustav Mahler’s Das Lied von der Erde (The Song of the Earth). Based on Japanese poems, it’s basically a symphony with tenor and alto soloists. Mahler wrote [...]

Brass Spectacular

Brass Spectacular – Tribute to Bill Pearce – Queen of Spades

This upcoming weekend, May 14-16, I’m going to Charlotte, North Carolina, to participate in the Salvation Army Brass Spectacular. It was started a few years ago here in Houston when Jamie Hood, trumpeter extra-ordinaire and Salvationist, brought together a “dream-team” of a brass-band, mainly with players from the Houston orchestras, some guys from the New [...]

La Bayadère and Fancy Free, nice Slide Side-review

Ok, I know I should have written this earlier, we’re already done with Houston Ballet’s new production of “La Bayadère – the Temple Dancer”, music by Leopold Minkus. (No relation to Charlie Mingus….) But, it’s not that often we’re having four live snakes on stage! I got to pet one of them on the cast-party [...]

Tosca

Tosca at HGO – Brent Phillips at UH – Jazz at Cézanne

I’m continuing my somewhat schizophrenic musical journey with going straight from Chorus Line to playing Tosca with the Houston Grand Opera. We had opening night a few days ago, and you know people like it when there’s that roar coming from the audience at the end! Patricia Racette debuts in the role of Tosca, and [...]

A Chorus Line at the Hobby Center

After playing 32 Nutcrackers in December plus all the Christmas gigs, and then having a nice week off with my family, I’m now in the second week of playing “A Chorus Line” at the Hobby Center here in Houston. I saw the movie years ago, but never played the show until now, and I gotta [...]

The Nutcracker at the Houston Ballet

The holiday season is here, and for me that means 35 performances of Tjaikovskij’s classic  The Nutcracker with the Houston Ballet. I’ve played it several times before, but only for about a week at a time. From Thanksgiving up until the New Year is a different story! Our Principal trumpet Jim Vassallo figured he has played [...]

Loh_255

Wagner back at HGO

The last time the Houston Grand Opera presented a Wagner-opera was Tannhäuser in 2001. Now, finally, Wagner is back, with a spectacular production of Lohengrin in a co-production with the Grand Théatre de Genève in Switzerland.  Simon O’Neill sings Lohengrin, Adrianne Pieczonka Elsa, and Maestro Patrick Summers makes it all come together.         [...]
