Dear all,

I'd like to invite you all to attend a concert this Friday night that will 
include the premiere of two new works by me, as well as several other 
wonderful pieces by my friends in the Electric Music Collective:

We'll also feature a new piece by Joseph Pehrson, and performances by 
Meredith Borden , Maja Cerar, Matthew Polashek, Sukato, and Marcus 
Bittencourt.  Details are below.

I hope to see you there!
