My friends and I were celebrating Labor Day in Lansing (Michigan), rehearsing my newest commissioned work "Unchained' written for violin, cello, saxophone, piano, and percussion. There were two incredible rehearsals (four hours each) with my dear friends Natalia Bezuglova, Oleg Bezuglov, Felix Borges, and my husband Samir Kambarov who revived my composition. The sound was outstandingly professional and deeply well connected with my ideas. We all had something to discuss over the music that I created for the Kentucky State Conference. The premier is going to be in Lexington on September 21st (Public Library). Everyone is excited about it and ready to record "Unchained" for the National Composition Competition by Music Teacher National Association. Wish us good luck and join us in Lexington!
