Michelle Van Handel: News

October 22, 2012

I had the pleasure of attending the "Gordon Lee Trio" with Kevin Deitz and Ron Steen.  A lovely establishment called Arrivederci hosted this outstanding jazz trio - They were excellent!



Central Oregon Symphony - May 4, 2011

I've been attending some rehearsals with the CO Symphony - they are wonderful  - Go Michael Gesme!  The concerts are May 14, 15, 16.



Wow - Kurt Elling - May 4, 2011

I went to Seattle a couple of weeks ago and listened to - no, experienced Kurt Elling at Jazz Alley.  He was incredible as well as his band. 

get ready - April 8, 2010

One of my heads-up friends let me know I needed to upate this page - So I will.

I'm watching window for UPS to deliver my huge box of CD's - Michelle Van Handel Goodbye Blues CD's.

Other cool news - I'll be playing a fun night of music from the CD at Broken Top Club (for all you fans who are members hope to see you) That is coming up mid April.

Following that is an exciting concert by Mike Strickland - I've been invited to sing a couple of tunes - This  concert is part of the Redmond Concert Series here in Central Oregon. 

More stuff happening, check the calendar.

As for journal entries.  I have really missed sitting down and working on the craft of songwriting.  Life is so busy starting at 6:00am -  my goals are to add in reading the paper everyday, trying out yoga and being positive. 

I was talking to a friend today about how important "believing" is  - We are so accustomed to analyzing everything, talking it through, evaluating validity and plausability.  Geez life was simpler years ago. 

Well, sorry about any typos - have to go, Michelle
