    Re: Stiver Mandolin Experience

    I was on the phone with Elderly Instruments a few years ago asking about a 70's era Gibson F5. The sales person was kind of so-so abut the instrument so i asked him to let me hear his choice. He...

    Re: Most Mandocellos at CMSA

    We probably talked at some point, I was at the table a few times, but too busy to check out name tags. I wonder if you heard the Cello ensemble (Low-Lifes) or the Aria? Glad you were there anyway.

    Got to sing your Aria with some CMSA friends at the open mic (20 minutes of pracrice between workshops and orchestra rehearsals). I think I should check the video (haven't seen it yet) before...

    Re: Guitar to mandocello conversion idea

    I bought a big Epiphone conversion dreadnaught just for travel (I have a 1911 Gibson K4 I would never take on a plane); it was in the case, the case tipped over at a train station, the head snapped...
  10. Re: Spring Suite, May 2019 for OM or Mandocello

    Re: New Bickford Mando-cello Method

    I would be able to do some proofing AFTER the CMSA convention (early October). I work with doctoral dissertations so I do a lot of proof reading and editing, but I see a lull in the next couple...
  13. Re: Concert aria for baritone and plucked orchestra

    I do understand the conflict between "music belongs to everyone" and "How does a composer make a living?" When I was a college choral director we were required to have valid paid-for copies (no...
  14. Re: Concert aria for baritone and plucked orchestra

    I'll be performing this beautiful aria with a mandolin ensemble at the CMSA open mic. Thank you for the wonderful music Victor, I hope we do it justice.
