I write free-lance about the arts and give talks at the Kravis Center before the classical Regional Arts concerts. As the former classical music and dance critic for the PALM BEACH (FL) POST, and before that, the Rochester (NY) DEMOCRAT AND CHRONICLE. I have covered music and dance as a journalist for 20+ years.
My work has appeared in various publications and web sites: the STUART NEWS (Scripps Treasure Coast Newspapers, FL), AMERICAN RECORD GUIDE, the PALM BEACH (FL) DAILY NEWS, the SOUTH FLORIDA CLASSICAL REVIEW.com as well as my blog, CLASSiWords.blogspot.com.
I speak to groups because I want everyone to understand that the arts -- especially music -- can be life-changing. You'll hear that at my pre-concert talks at the Kravis Center's Regional Arts series in 2010-2011, as well as my classes at the Society for Lifelong Learning, Florida Atlantic University, in Jupiter.
I was privileged to be on the ground floor of the PALM BEACH ARTSPAPER.com, the newest and best site to cover the arts in Palm Beach County. Working with my highly creative former POST co-workers makes an otherwise daunting enterprise continuously fresh and fun.
