On Thursday, November 30th, 2006, I will be reading & opening up for Armen Nalbandian's new ensemble named “Balance” @ the Fresno Art Museum’s Rhythms of Art Concert.
Nalbandian has written an entirely new book of music especially for this ensemble configuration. The ensemble includes a remarkable group of musicians (yes, one of them is a Grammy nominee):
Armen Nalbandian: Fender Rhodes, Percussion
Kevin Hill: Bass, Tuba
Brian Hamada: Drums, Percussion
Paul Luckessi: Woodwinds
Andre Bush: Guitar
Tommy Delgado: Percussion, Guitar
Nino Moschella: Percussion, Vocals, Guitar
Michael Aguilar: Percussion, Harmonica
Kevin McDonald: Bass
This show should be awesome. I will read for 15-20 minutes (I am planning to read some music-related poems from my forthcoming book) and then get out of the way to let the music roll. I am beginning to think Nalbandian is one of Fresno's treasures.
Don't miss this event. Mark your calendars now.
