House Concert TOMORROW for NY Singer/Pianist Todd Alsup

Tessa and I are thrilled to be hosting a house concert tomorrow night for a Singer/Songwriter from New York City, Todd Alsup. He’ll be sharing songs from his new album Currency, and hopefully a few pop/R&B covers as well! I’ll be opening with a some jazz and a couple of new age pieces from Piano on 24th. We have thoroughly enjoyed Todd’s performances at Redeye Grill, across the street from Carnegie Hall in NYC, because of his soulful interpretation of cover songs and amazing vocal technique. (Indeed, we like some of his covers better that the originals!) Todd has residency at Redeye, so if you’re passing through and want to get a great meal with live music in NY, see if he’s playing! Now back to tomorrow’s house concert....

Organ in Pennsylvania (1 of 2)

Tessa and I had the opportunity to provide the music for a Christian Science church in Berwyn, PA last month. How fun to visit and perform as guests! This church is equipped with an organ, which was another opportunity for me to have an organ performance. Here is the prelude I played, comprised of organ solo versions of two songs that Tessa and I have published over the two years: Let There Be Light, and O Gentle Presence. Both are settings to poems by Mary Baker Eddy, and sound very nice as...
