Upcoming Show: Phantom Orchid

It’s one month away from the big day, and it’s time to unveil the big news!

What news is that, you ask?

On Friday May 12th at 7:00pm Eastern Standard Time is the world premiere of my first full-length work, Phantom Orchid.

Phantom Orchid is a concept album which combines contemporary classical music and jazz to tell a story about the pursuit of happiness and the dangers that can arise along the way. It takes its name from the phantom orchid, an elusive plant that can be found growing on the dark floor of dense forests in the Pacific Northwest. This orchid is becoming increasingly hard to find as its natural habitat becomes more rare.


This concert partially fulfills the requirements for the Master of Music degree at New York University. It is free and open to the public. There will be a reception after the show.  Scroll to the bottom of this post to see the flyer.

Phantom Orchid is:

Patricia Cardona, flute and electronics
Gabe Terracciano, violin
Ammon Swinbank, flute and composition
Nial Radhitia Djuliarso, piano
Jonathan Scott Gardner, bass
Paul Shaw, drums
Blair Perry, clarinet

Recordings and Update

Hello everyone!  I have two announcements for this week.  One is that the recordings from Extended Horizons Project at Cafe Racer have been posted to the archive at racersessions.com.  That way you can still hear the show even if you weren’t there.  I am working on obtaining the files myself, that way I can post them to soundcloud and embed them on this site for easier access.  I will let you know when that happens.

The second and even more exciting announcement is……..(drum roll):

I am moving to New York City.  I will be flying out on Tuesday, August 18 – two weeks before my first day at NYU, where I will be pursuing my M.M. in flute performance.  I will be studying under (guess who) Robert Dick.  I am so excited I can hardly stand it.  BUT – practical things first: I need a place to live and a job.  So if anyone happens to have any connections in New York – especially someone I can potentially stay with for a short time while I find a place to rent – please let me know!

Thank you all and hope your summers are all warming up to something wonderful.  Until next time…
