I hope everyone is well. The past 4 months had been a seriously off-the-charts busy period for me. January to March 2016 was a mix of private functions, jam sessions, big band show, concerts with WVC (ours own and with others) locally and out-of-town, arranging horns for several album recording sessions, my teaching classes (both privately and in UCSI) and others. It was just non-stop!
April showed a bit of slow down, with the end of the semester in university, a short holiday with the lady, and performing with the MPO, a George Gershwin & Leonard Bernstein programme, aptly named RHAPSODY IN BLUE. I have a few days off before May arrives.
But May onward is set to be another busy season! My band WVC will be making a comeback after a brief hiatus with a vengeance. From Shakespeare to KL Swing festival, our schedule is filling up like crazy. Anyway, here’s a brief update on my performance schedule. I hope you can make for some of it, if not all:
