  1. Our Ann Arbor concert is almost here! I’m really excited to be doing this. It’s going to be great making music with Mark Stone, Bob Schneeweis, Matt Dufresne, Dan Piccolo and Miles Brown. Also – I am really happy that I finally have the opportunity to perform with the other two professional musicians in my family: my son Alex Dyring, a bassist and Berklee graduate who will be playing percussion with us, and my stepmother Marcia Hilden Anderson, an outstanding clarinettist with a PhD in performance from Michigan State.

    The Bahá’í Center where we are having the concert is less than four miles from the house I was living in when I began piano lessons and wrote my first composition at age eight. That composition was very adventuresome for a first-year music student.

    When I was a senior in high school, my career goal was to be a rock and jazz violinist. Well, here I am fulfilling that goal performing in the world music-based jazz compositions of Mark Stone. I have also been interested in world music since childhood. African roots music has had an impact on me, having grown up hearing my mother’s childhood stories of living in Africa for fifteen years. This is going to be so much fun!

      Hey Wes. This is Bev Moore. I’m coming to the concert and bringing my parents. So looking forward to Saturday evening! I hadn’t realized Alexander is performing with you. You must be delighted about that!


      • Bev, that’s fantastic!!! I really look forward to seeing you and meeting your parents. Yes, it’s wonderful being with Alexander and feels great to play with him. He really is a very talented musician, and it really shows even on an instrument he does not normally play. I’m so glad you can be there.


  2. Thank you to all who attended our concert. You were the ones that really made this a success. We could not have done this without your spirit and energy!
