I am delighted to announce that Da-Hong Seetoo, Grammy Award-winning producer and engineer, will be joining Michael Stern and IRIS Orchestra for our upcoming recording. Da-Hong was suggested to me by Jeffrey Khaner who collaborated on his last couple recordings. Unbeknownst to me, Da-Hong has been connected to me for some time through my husband, David DePeters. Michael, David, Roberto Diaz and Da-Hong all went to Curtis together, probably making Mr. Delancey’s life a living hell.
Check out this interview with Da-Hong for his story from Shanghai to Curtis to Juilliard to recording for Deutsche Grammophon. http://www.enjoythemusic.com/superioraudio/guiltypleasures/0904/
Also, a photo of our upcoming tour guest conductor, Maestro Rafael Frühbeck de Burgos. He reminds me what a privilege it is to make great music onstage with The Philadelphia Orchestra.
