THURSDAY, MARCH 3, 7:00pm - Walnut Creek Civic Arts, 111 North Wiget Lane, Walnut Creek. The Flock of Flutes is a semi-professional ensemble conducted by our very own Monica Williams. At this performance you will have the chance not only to hear some great classical repertoire arranged for flute choir, but also to hear the debut performance of 'Flirtation' written by Wendy Loomis and arranged by Monica Williams (the duo aka Phoenix Rising). Also featuring the percussion ensemble Bangs + Beats. Never miss a world premiere! $7 cover. www.arts-ed.org.

FRIDAY, MARCH 4, 8:00pm - Clarion Music, 816 Sacramento Street, San Francisco. Please join COPUS for a special appearance by poet/producer Clara Hsu when we present spoken word and music selections including 'Seasons' and 'Dark Moon'. Multi-talented Clara also manages the amazing Clarion Music store upstairs and hosts the Live at Clarion Series of world musicians downstairs. If you've never been to this wonderful jewel in San Francisco's Chinatown, it is time for you to check it out! $15 cover. www.clarionmusic.com.


2. UPCOMING CD RELEASE

As many of you know, Copus Music recently signed a deal with Gate Media that includes national distribution of the first four CDs from our catalog. The first to be launched in the world is called "Whispers" by Phoenix Rising (Wendy, composition/piano; Monica, flute/arrangement). We expect it to be out by the end of March. That will be quickly followed by a brand new, remastered version of Copus' "Later Than You Think". Stay tuned for dates and CD release party information!


3. POETRY SECTION
We would like to feature a poem by Clarion Hsu as an extra incentive to come out Friday night and check her out live! Enjoy.

Why We Are Here — © Clara Hsu
The creativity of human beings
is revered in this house
where music that is natural,
unpretentious, and living in
all of us abounds.

Come in with an open heart
to savor the warmth for a while,
so that the music within you
may stir and grow and bloom.

Peace,

Wendy + Royal
