In August we enjoyed another visit to beautiful Rio de Janeiro, where Eugene participated once again in the Rio International Cello Encounter. We enjoyed a reunion with our new friends, harpist Cristina Braga and producer/bassist Ricardo Medeiros with four concerts in Rio celebrating the release of our new CD, “Paisagem.” Cristina, Ricardo and Eugene were joined in concert by the wonderful pianist Marcos Nimrichter and the great drummer Joca Moraes.
Like so many around the world, we find our thoughts leaping to the hopeful: new beginnings, positive change, a leap toward values that really matter.
Eugene's recent performance with Crispin Campbell and string ensemble at Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore in northern Michigan was a delight. Our heartfelt thanks go to Crispin and his wonderful wife, Carol Navarro, as well as the superb Interlochen musicians -- and audience! -- who extended such a warm welcome. We can't wait to come back.
