Hello, dear lovelies,
Greetings! My apologies for another "better late than never" newsletter. I've got two performances for you on Saturday, one at 2pm at Flushing Library and the other at 7pm in Manhattan near the Port Authority. It's a special day for I'll be using almost everything I've got in one jam-packed day: playing the yangqin, percussion, violin, dancing, and throat singing!
Music From China, program of Musical Brocades

Music dating from ancient Han and Tang dynasties to the music of today is presented in an eclectic collection of songs in classical and folk traditions, and in contemporary setting. If you haven't seen me performing on yangqin (Chinese hammer dulcimer) here's a chance.
Mark Lamb Dance and Metro Baptist Church present
Seasonal Saturday Sanctuary Salon Series at 7 pm “On a String and a Prayer”
Saturday, June 8, 2013, 7:00 - 10:00 pm
Metro Baptist Church
410 West 40th street, New York, NY
(9th / 10th Aves) A, C, E, 1, 2, 3, N, R, 7 to Times Square 42nd Street
I and my cohorts from Trio Tritticali (Leanne Darling on viola, Loren Dempster on cello) will be guest string players in “On a String and a Prayer,” a spirited evening of dance, music and storytelling that celebrates spring in the tradition of the Seasonal Saturday Sanctuary Salon Series at Seven. Performers will explore ideas that blur the lines between dancer and musician, and which comes first – movement or music?
The Salon will also feature special guest vocalist Mara Goodman, performing with long-time Mark Lamb Dance collaborator and acclaimed movement artist, Deborah Gladstein. They will perform the dance, "Kaddish," a piece by special guest choreographer, Barbara Roan, based on the Jewish prayer of mourning.
Hope to see you at a performance, and thanks for reading!
Hugs and best wishes,
