We just returned from two weeks in Ecuador. As usual it was a heart opening experience to work with the young musicians in Esmeraldas and to play a concert with them and their gifted music director Edison Andres Gualotuña Ruiz. Of course we took time to explore the unequaled art and nature of Ecuador.
Another Great Audition Season for the Studio!
