Happy holidays to everyone and blessings of the season! Valley and I have escaped to the Warm until mid January but look forward to seeing you in the new year.
On Sept 21 Rick celebrated United Nations Day of Peace in Victoria by walking in the Puppets For Peace Parade and performing with giant puppets in the garden at Government House. See the finale at http://vimeo.com/10695582.
MY SYMPHONY, Rick & Valley's educational concert with the Vancouver Island Symphony conducted by Pierre Simard, premiered to 2300 enthusiastic children. The show will be repeated Feb. 11, 2015 with 44 musicians and 45 voices in the Fabulous Fives Choir directed by Patricia Plumley and we hope to make a recording of it. This year's Grade 4 audience will have a chance this fall to audition to be in next year's choir!
THE GREAT GAZZOON won Parents' Choice, Family Choice and the 2013 Western Canadian Music Award for Children's Recording of the Year!
