The NAIL-ing List: Neil Alexander's News & Happenings from the world of NAIL
Welcome to the February 2017 issue of
The NAILing List
Neil Alexander's Performances, Workshops and other bits...
Ah February.... that time of year when you just know - even though it's still cold out - that Spring is on it's way, for real. The days are getting longer, and even the sun comes out now and again. January ended up being crazy busy, with multiple projects popping up all over the place - like the Funk Facilitators, which returns to the Falcon this month. Lots of other things are brewing, including a spring workshop series, new solo performances and more; plus Decora's big CD release show on Feb 16th at Lincoln Center. Once again I am truly grateful for so many great opportunities.Here's what's up February:
