Kickstarter Campaign on its way for commisioning new music!

I am embarking on a new project to raise funds in order to arrange and compose new music for two concerts coming up.

I will perform with Big Band Nineteen in San Jose on May 11. The big band has asked me to write original music and arrange existing original music for violin and big band.

The Mads Tolling Quartet will perform at SF Jazz’ new Center in downtown San Francisco on May 9th. The concert is a tribute to the great jazz violinist, Stephane Grappelli. It will feature the Mads Tolling Quartet interpretations of Grappelli’s music through arrangements and compositions done by me.

My time commitment will depend on what funds are possible to raise, so I hope for your support. The project will be launched on Monday, March 26.
