Native American Flute Concerts at Rochester Fringe Festival 2015

The Cobbs Hill Consort is excited to return to the Rochester Fringe Festival, performing two concerts Sunday 20 September 2015. The afternoon concert will be at 3:15pm, and the evening concert will be at 7:00pm. Joining the group on drums and percussion for these performances will be Sean M. Sullivan.

This year's concerts will be at a new venue for the Fringe, the Lyric Theatre: Prince Street Chamber, 440 East Ave (at Prince St), Rochester, NY. The venue reports that other than street parking, they have arranged for parking in nearby lots across Prince Street and across East Avenue. The entry to the Prince Street Chamber (behind the Main Stage) is on the side of the building down Prince Street.

We are looking forward to sharing our music with you, and hope to see you at the Rochester Fringe Festival.

Jefferson's Father's Death

I'm sad to report the sudden and unexpected death of my father just this month. This has been a time of great transition for my family, and a time of reflection on life for me personally. The river of life has its ebbs and flows, constantly changing, ever continuing, with the experience of its passengers along for the ride just a tiny yet remarkable glimpse of the great expanse that makes up the whole. I hope to fill our music with the richness of that experience of life, and it will be my great honor to play for you very soon, 20-21 September 2014, at the Rochester Fringe Festival.

UR Medicine Palliative Care Memorial Service

The annual University of Rochester Palliative Care Program memorial service, "Ceremony of Remembrance," was a beautiful and moving experience. It was held today at the historic venue of the Rochester Academy of Medicine. It was such an honor for me to play solo Native American flute, playing the gathering music at the beginning, then near the end of the program.
