Other Ensembles

Colombian Ensemble

When we lived in Colombia in 2006 I formed a group with seven tremendous musicians – all of them were under 25! Check out the alto player, his name is Juan Fernando “Guapito” Giraldo. In the Music Player you can hear a song I wrote for a good friend who passed, Ken LaRoche. Shortly after his death, many of his friends had illuminating dreams and visions. He communicated this to one: ”I am a field of energy that glories in the freedom of other dimensions.” This piece is called “Ken the Energy Field,” I think Ken helped me write it.
