    I had a great time having Kieran Hanlon back on the podcast. In this episode, recorded on February 20, we talk about the Fredonia Bass Fest, which had recently wrapped up and which had past podcast guests Danny Ziemann and Lauren Pierce as guest artists.

    We also dig into Kieran’s new trio edition (bass, guitar, cello) of the Eccles Sonata, the interesting self-care topic that came up at the Bass Fest, and more.  Enjoy!

    682: Lizzie Burns on chamber music and community engagement

    It was a pleasure chatting with Lizzie Burns. Lizzie spent six years studying in Boston while maintaining an active freelance career. She was a founding member of Phoenix and the Pianosofia Chamber Players, and a fellow of Symphony Nova.

    We chatted on February 25h for the podcast, and much has changed in the world in the intervening weeks, but I hope that you enjoy taking your mind off of these concerning times with this engaging and thoughtful conversation with Lizzie!

    679: Ranaan Meyer on COVID-19 and staying positive

    We're all experiencing difficult times right now. 

    Ranaan Meyer, my longtime friend and member of Time for Three, reached out to me this week, and we had an inspiring conversation about how we're handling the current situation.

    Ranaan has been on the podcast many times in the past, and I felt much better about what I can do to make the best of things after chatting with him.
