  • Most memorable Next-Level Performance

    The concert celebrating my 60th birthday with the OSTN at the Teatro Nacional em Brasilia, Brazil (my home town). The entire program was dedicated to me and I performed as soloist 2 of my concerti, wrote an overture and conducted the orchestra and also conducted a large percussion orchestra with several of my former students.
  • What Drives Your Creativity?

    Listen to good music (classical, brazilian and standards), reading a good book, playing Tai-Chi and practicing mallets regularly. I need to do other things that are not music related to get better inspired when I make music.
