Home sweet home in NL after touring many parts of Sweden and Berlin and showcasing at LIVE AT HEART music conference. What a time! My heart is filled to the brim from all of the wonderful people I met and the amazing music and culture I experienced.

I leave in four days for my first tour of Berlin and Sweden. Here’s where you’ll find me performing and teaching:
Thanks to MusicNL for the 4 MusicNL Award nominations! I’ve been nominated for “Female Artist of the Year”, “Instrumental Recording of the Year”, “Educator of the Year” and “Side Musician of the Year”. I’m really blown away by this. Thank you to my Gemeinhardt Musical Instruments and MusicNL families who support what I do and help me shine.
It was an honour to present and perform at the National Flute Convention in Orlando, Florida. I spoke on a career panel about entrepreneurship and performed at the showcase for the Gemeinhardt Musical Instruments all-stars at #NFAFlute2018. I wish I could put into words how special the Gemeinhardt flute family is to me. Such wonderful people who warm my heart and make FANTASTIC instruments! Thank you for helping me shine.
Every two years, one of my favourite music festivals, Sound Symposium takes over St. John’s and fills the streets (and harbour) with inspiring music! I was fortunate to perform my SUNRISE meditation piece to a beautiful sunrise at Atlantic Place and we were rained out for our special SUNSET performance on Signal Hill which we hope to reschedule. Here are some beautiful pictures of the SUNRISE performance, taken by Colette Phillips.
What a tour! Did it ever warm my heart to have my music and our films so well received in North Carolina. Here are some of my favourite TV, radio and newspaper clips collected from the tour:
Thanks to talented NC filmmaker, Mariah Dunn Kramer and @wwaynews “Good Morning Carolina” who did a great segment about FROM THE RIVER TO THE OCEAN on their show this morning! Mariah created a beautiful film in the project, “Riverwalk”.
