The garage may be finished, but you’re never done working on Schubert. This is the summer of playing some of the most incredible quintets ever written. Stay tune for lots of great music (and plenty’s of practicing…)

🏅Yesterday Lake was honored to attend the Oklahoma Foundation for Excellence academic awards banquet to receive his Academic All State award. He spent the day mingling with the 99 other honored students from across the state, former all staters, and keynote speaker, Vijay Gupta, violinist and ...artistic director of the Street Symphony of Los Angeles. We joined him for dinner, along with his honored teacher, Michelle Baldwin, and sweet girlfriend, Abby. Lake had so much to share after his day, and we all discussed what we do that makes us come alive, which was the title of the keynote speech. The Oklahoma Arts Institute at Quartz Mountain Orchestra, formed of young people from all over the state, performed, and Vijay joined them to play a piece written by his wife, Reena Esmail, Composer. It was beautiful! Five educators were also honored with the Oklahoma Medal of Excellence for their contributions. The intelligence, service, and talent of our Oklahoma students and educators is phenomenal! To give you an idea of how competitive this is, the AVERAGE ACT score was 33 (perfect is 36 and 6 scored that), and the AVERAGE GPA was 4.22!🤯It was a beautiful evening, and we are so humbled for Lake to be a part of such a distinguished group. The banquet will be televised on OETA at 3 pm Saturday and 10 am Sunday.🏅#LakeLyon #ilovemyson Thank you to Cherokee Elementary School and Cherokee High School teachers who have loved and taught Lake so well!

Totally thrilled to be performing @reenaesmail “Concerto for You” after my keynote address at @ofexellence [Oklahoma Foundation of Excellence] annual dinner, alongside some incredible young musicians. First time in Oklahoma, and I’m sure it’s not my last!

Please pardon our dust. Improved studio (and violinist) on the way.

Keep digging your well. Keep knocking. Eventually the joy will inside will open a window to see who’s there. - Rumi

In for a week of “knocking” with some construction going in my new studio, but at least I’ve got a pup to keep me company.
