Jan 21, 2015
Happy New Year!
I hope your 2015 is off to a grand start and not as cold as mine is, now that I'm back in Boston!
Mr. Ho's Orchestrotica Live on Dream Farm Radio
How's this for a community bowl cocktail? The delicious taste of vibraphone, shared amongst friends in a New England Barn. Have we gone mad? Yes! Find out where, and why below...
That photo was taken this past fall at Julie Lavender's Dream Farm Radio, and the audio from the interview and our session with Julie and her team is now available below.
Our session featured the entire quintet in a beautiful New England barn-turned-studio, featuring special guest Jeremy Smith on percussion. In addition to some new recordings of our favorite quintet repertoire, you can also hear our first studio-quality rendition of the ancient Georgian chant piece, "Shen Khar Venakhi" that I arranged for 8 bows-on-vibraphone and bass flute. How's that for some fresh, ancient exotica?

When are you going to play at _____?
We're always flattered when we get asked this question, and feel free to continue to inquire. If you want to see us in your hometown, or at a festival, one of the best things you can do is to contact the venue or presenter directly and tell them you want to see Mr. Ho's Orchestrotica. Sometimes we may be able to tell you who the right person is to contact; other times, we may not know the venue. If you do reach out to a venue or arts presenter, let us know and we'll do our best to follow up and work with them too to make a concert happen in your area. We're actively working on concerts for 2015/16, so now is a good time. Stay tuned!
