This winter holiday starts with two exciting projects I get to be involved in – woohoo!
I am really looking forward to joining the South African National Youth Orchestra Foundation as a tutor. We meet in Potch to brave the cold and play music all day (and night). I am especially excited to see Thami James and meet Darryn Prinsloo – two young euphonists who are passionate about playing their instruments. I get to see old friends again, as Bjorn Breistein will be coming to conduct the wind band and Mark Hampson and Yvonne-marie Brand will be tutoring the brass too. Thanks to Sophia Welz for getting us all together for a kiff course!
In other news, we will be sending out more info as the dates approaches, but Proboscis will be around in July for only 5 gigs. Liane Halton leaves us for new adventures in China and, as much as we hope she will come back soon, we also hope that she has a mind blowing, crazy, fun, eating-lots-of-food, making new friends kind of adventure. BUT SHE IS NOT GONE YET. Phax and Seed join to collaborate – you can check out our sound here…https://soundcloud.com/proboscis-3
It is all originals works by myself, Liane Halton and Shaun Acker. Jay Latter (drums) and Kyle Dijkstra (bass) are the kick ass rhythm section.
