“Let’s Have A Sit” in a park I’ve never seen in a decade of playing gigs in Kalamazoo! It’s a stone’s throw from Bells! And with water running through a channel between the buildings, it’s almost like being in Venice. Except colder...and leafier! . . Check out the excellent jump cut, in order to trim a few seconds to fit inside a minute. Nearly perfect continuity...easy when you’re sitting 😜 . . . #letshaveasit #sittinwithdan #kalamazoo #kzoo #arcadiadistrict #park #urbanplanning #cool #empty #fall #sit #video

“Let’s Have A Sit—Alma Edition!” Alma is my grandmother’s name, and also the name of a town in central Michigan with an eponymous college and an excellent choir! I’m excited to join them onstage tomorrow in Kalamazoo for the finale concert of the Michigan meeting of the American Choral Directors Association. (I’m guest soloing on violin; the talented Dr. William W. Nichols directs the choir.) . . . #letshaveasit #sittinwithdan #alma #almacollege #almamichigan #michigan #midlandmi #music #choral #choralmusic #choir #smalltown #bigsound

Say hello to Princess Leia and...???? (Like Imperial Stormtroopers, violinists prefer to remain anonymous!) . .

Okay, string players of the @michiganphil —Let’s Have A Sit! We may have needed SEVERAL Sits after this grueling but amazing concert featuring Hindemith’s Symphonic Metamorphosis, a recent composition by Wael Binali, and a riveting rendition of Barber’s Violin Concerto featuring @danielle_belen ! . . I was delighted to ‘Sit’ guest concertmaster for this concert, which begins a year-long celebration of Nan Washburn’s 20th season leading the orchestra. Quite the milestone! . . . #letshaveasit #sittinwithdan #musiciansofinstagram #violin #viola #greenroom #intermission #concert #livemusic #violinist #classicalmusic #michigan #annarbor #umich #plymouthmi #conductor #parcmatters

Alright, you Instagram foodies—TWO can play that game!! 😂 First up on the tasting menu: A deconstructed bread-taco (read: sandwich) featuring wild-caught Atlantic tuna and a piquant jalapeño relish. Bon appetit! 👨🏻‍🍳 . . . #lunch #lunchtime #chef #finedining #tuna #tunasandwich #sandwich #tunacreations #hautecuisine #tastingmenu #deconstructed #pretentious #silly #foodie

Let’s Have A Sit (Twice)! My favorite spot in Ann Arbor deserves multiple sits. Sittings. Seatings. Care to make it a party of two? . . . #letshaveasit #sittinwithdan #annarbor #bartonpond #huronriver #michigan #water #paddle #lake #river #fall #chilly #hoodie #dusk #peaceful #dam #dock

Let’s have...a Paddle! Haha...sitting is fun, but I can’t resist sharing something a little different sometimes, too 😉 Watch me attempt to do the Limbo under an ill-placed fallen tree! . . . #letshaveasit #sittinwithdan #letshaveapaddle #paddlinwithdan #kayak #kayaking #paddling #paddle #fhole #houseofhamill #fall #brisk #beautiful #nature #manchestermi #river #riverraisin #michigan #outdoors

Known by some as ‘The Pringle,’ the Biomedical Science Research Building auditorium adds a certain zest to the architectural outlines on campus. . . . #umich #michigan #campus #architecture #modern #blackandwhite #lines #curves #clouds

“Salute the sun!” Catching the last rays of a gorgeous September day in Ann Arbor, Two Hearted Ale in hand. What a weekend! I earned this brew with a big trio concert on Saturday and a full day today playing violin AND viola for @whitepinesentertainment ... but the real reward was doing what I love the most: Making great music with great friends. A day filled with music could never be gray. . . . #endoftheday #satisfaction #beer @bellsbrewery #twoheartedale #sun #alfresco #organic #italian #annarbor #community #music #musician #gratitude #violin #viola
