Kozmik Dancing September 16!

Yes Friends,

A thrilling dance experience can be yours this weekend! I’ve written a bunch of new music for the Kozmik Keyboard to accompany YOU, while Jacob Larmour speaks inspirationally, and you, of course, dance.

Rain or shine 2-6 pm @ Davie and Bute st. You know, the rainbow walk! Jacob Larmour and I will be on from 3:30 – 4:30 for a fascinating guided experience of the human story.  Not to be missed!

Come to Spacious Music at the Atrium September 24!

Oh yessss…if you couldn’t make it to the June 25 Concert ~ now’s your chance…incredible new music from John Korsrud, Hugh Fraser, Bill Runge and moi! It’s a free concert in a public space…fabulous musicians…super music in the great spaciousness…

 

See you there!

 

Here’s a sneak peek at my co-write with Bill Runge, “Lagoon”, which will have its second performance on September 24.

Look UP in the night sky this weekend!

This weekend brings the peak of Summer! We’ve had the fireworks, we’ve had Pride and now the great celestial Perseid meteor show takes over…up to eighty meteors an hour and fireballs will be somehow silently whooshing over our heads this very weekend! I kid you not! So get away from the city lights if you can and enjoy the greatest show off earth…

Actually it’s a lot more mellow than that 🙂 Here’s our tune “River of Stars” for your starry enjoyment over this beautiful Summer weekend…how I wish Summer could last forever!

 

Now for a haiku by Mike:

rainless sky for weeks

photons drizzle down in the

perseid shower

This will be the world premiere of Haiku Mime, a whimsical physical interpretation of haiku poetry submitted from around the world.

Please join us and be a part of the blossoming of this novel cultural collaboration.

I’m recovering from a concussion and will not be performing tonight

Yes, it’s true.  I was clipping my mother’s toenails and fell off her bed into a chest of drawers. I had a cranial sacral treatment yesterday, and slept for twelve hours. I’m as surprised as you are.

Peace to All,

See you when I see you,

Holly

ps. Kristian Alexandrov and Adam Rorlick will be playing tonight, oh!stardust golden
