Congrats to all the amazing students and their teachers at Mount Royal Conservatory in Calgary who played for me on November 26-28th. This is the 2nd time I’ve been invited to adjudicate their fall festival. Such fantastic performances and nice, responsive students. Thanks for having me and a special shout out to the amazing Brett Gunther for his organizing and fantastic teaching! I was also able to catch the great lute player Sylvain Bergeron playing that weekend for the Calgary Guitar Society where he showcased works from the Doni Lute Book (Italian Toccatas and dances from the 17th century).
