Violist Jason Amos is on an amazing adventure this fall. He, along with Adrienne Taylor, are members of the Sphinx Virtuosi, who are touring the US from mid September to mid October. He made sure to send a message to our students from the road, in time for their first week of lessons. While we will all miss him while he’s gone, we know he is doing amazing work as always!

Greetings MusiConnects Students,
I’m currently sitting poolside at our hotel in Macon, GA. However, I assure you that Ms. Adrienne and I have been working very hard – rehearsing up to six hours a day in preparation for our 14-city tour! Our chamber orchestra has 18 people in it: 9 violins, 4 violas, 3 cellos, and 2 basses. We also have no conductor, so we have to REALLY listen to each other, breathe together, and do everything that we talk about in our chamber groups at Chittick.
Should you ever find yourself here in Macon, be sure to stop by Jeanne’s on Mulberry St. for some delicious soul food! I also had the chance to stop by the local NBC station and watch my friend from high school, Michael Estimé, do his job as the Chief Meteorologist (Weather Man) on live TV.
I’m so excited to have played our first two concerts already for elementary school students because they were great listeners and really enjoyed the music.
As much fun as I’m having, I can’t wait to get back to Chittick to hear all about your summers and play more music with all of you.
