  • Hello February! Looking forward to my musical keynote at WestCast educators conference on Feb 16 followed by two performances of My Symphony with the Vancouver Island Symphony and Fabulous Fives Choir at the Port Theatre Feb 17.

    Then we head up to Powell River for the sold out Feb 18 Gala Premiere of Tai Uhlman's documentary film 'End of the Road' celebrating the founding of Lund, which includes Pied Pumkin music in the score. Due to popular demand, matinees have been added Feb 19.

    In March and April we debut ROOTS & GROOVES, my new duo concert with brilliant young keyboardist Nico Rhodes. He wrote me a fan letter when he was 8 then grew up to orchestrate my music for symphony.  We have shows so far on Protection Island, Port Alberni, Brackendale, Denman Island, Hornby Island and Victoria. Let us know if you'd like to host a show or house concert!

    Congratulations Valley Hennell and Kari Burk for winning a 2016 Academics' Choice Award for 'Snapshot of a Soul Place in the land of special needs' which has already been honoured with 2016 Family Choice and National Parenting Products (NAPPA) Awards. This illustrated memoir by Kari Burk is based on the life of our 26 year old granddaughter Mielle, with over 40 original paintings and drawings http://www.snapshotofasoulplace.com

    You may remember Mielle from the 1995 'Angels Do' video (click videos!)  See our interview on Shaw TV.  https://youtu.be/f_n5ZJ6z3fg . Read the story of how the book came to be in BC BookLook http://bcbooklook.com/2016/06/13/snapshot-wins-a-second-time/
