TPSMEA All State Band 1st place

It is truly an honor to receive  the 1st place at the TPSMEA All State Band  (Texas Private School Music Educators Association)  and performed as 1st tenor saxophone on January 25th   All State Concert at Charles W. Eisemann Center for Performing Arts.

 We had a lot of fun staying in beautiful Renaissance Hotel in Dallas, where we can meet and great other dedicated musicians from across the state. It is always an amazing experience  to learn and performed with the best conductors in the State of Texas .

Musician’s Journey

It is an honor to be at the cover page  of February issue of Simply Spring Branch Magazine.

When they called me last month asking for the interview I never thought  that they will put me on the cover.

I hope this will create an additional recognition of Polka Dots project and help to promote our mission – keep bringing cheer where cheer needed the most !!!!

 

Polka Dots at The Forum Assisted Living Facility

December 7th, the Polka Dots performed at the Forum Assisted Living Facility.

We had such an amazing time and we were so glad to be there. I was joined by a few classmates, where we performed old show tunes, pop music, jazz, and Christmas songs to the residents  of The Forum. The show was a great success and I am excited to perform with the center again.

Since the creation of the Polka Dots, it has been a goal to involve students and young musicians in volunteering with me; luckily this dream is slowly being realized. I can’t wait for more performances 

next year and all the years to come.

Our 7th year and we are going strong!!!

Tomball German Festival Christmas Market 2019

Tomball German Festival 2019 was a great success!

December 13-15 was filled with great music, dancing, and delicious food. I was so happy to be stage manager and performer this time around. Thank you all who danced or talked with me at the Festival. We had some great upgrades and the weather was absolutely perfect. I loved working with Squeeze Box with Mollie B and Ted Lange, Auf Geht’s, and Das Ist Keine Kunst Folk Dancers. Thank you so much to Movin’ Melvin Brow for joining us, it was an honor to dance with you. Watch life  https://www.facebook.com/de.ellis/videos/10155620181142047/

This year marks the 8th years working with Tomball and Das Ist Lustig.  It has been some of the best years of my life; I’ve seen how much the festival has grown and become something special. Thank you all for giving me this opportunity to grow as a musician and performer. I can’t wait to see you all next year in March!
