It’s my blog and I can self-promote if I want to, self-promote if I want to, se-lf prah-mote-if-I-want-to.
I’ve been working with Housing Works Bookstore Cafe on a new series for classical musicians and authors called “Safe Space”. Musicians will play about a half hour of music, authors will read original material for 15-20 minutes, and then there will be a discussion About Art. There are always Hip Young Things hanging around Housing Works, so we figured why not try putting the classical music there, getting smart artists to talk to one another, and seeing what happens. It’s from 7pm to 8:30pm tonight at 126 Crosby Street in Manhattan. Performing/reading/talking tonight are pianist Jonathan Biss and author Adam Haslett. Bring a date and improve your mind, body and soul. More information here.
In case you couldn’t tell from all the videos of cats watching figure skaters on this blog, I am a PR Expert, which is why Chamber Music American has me hosting an “Ask the Experts” roundtable–two of them, actually–on Thursday. The sessions are from 2 to 3pm, and then from 3:15 to 4:15 pm. Apparently, I cost only $10 and you can ask me all your career-related questions. Don’t tell my clients. This is all going down at the Westin in Times Square. More information here. If you don’t have career-related questions and just want to talk about Downton Abbey, that’s fine, too. I also know a lot about musicals and the Great Depression?
