In recent years, with my focus on composing and writing, including preparing my opera, "City of Saint Francis," I have restricted my performing to supporting causes here in the Bay Area that concern me deeply, including the Rachel Corrie Foundation, the Middle East Children's Alliance, San Quentin Prison, and various events sponsored by KPFA, as well as appearances on KPFA Radio. I have shown my paintings only in my studio.
The future will include performances of the six Bach Suites, and chamber music with pianist Jeanne Stark and others, to be arranged.
