I received this reply to the latest issue of our
email newsletter (In-Tune), thought I'd share it
HI - I'm enjoying your latest edition of In-Tune. Your doing a great
job! Here's an update about what I have been doing:
I've been booking serious concerts with orchestras and in concert halls with
a few different talented performers. Here's info about one pianist who I
think is great and is available for solo or concerto performances. She is
AWESOME! If anyone is interested in a performance by this top pianist who is
an expert in classical as well as ragtime and piano novelties of the 1920's
please contact me. We're already booking her 2004 season.
