Due to lockdowns there are no concerts at the moment! This is hard for our community of musicians. Even harder consequences face the Maasai in Kajiado in South Kenya, who are threatened to die of starvation due to the third lockdown. So I decided to donate the income of the next ten score orders to this project. My friend Douglas McFalls, who founded the "Pillars of Maasai Development", explains: "We need to raise $6000 to provide food for 45 families and 15 individuals, as well as five teacher wages for an initial four weeks, though the duration of these lockdowns in unknown. Our local partner, Pillar of Maasai Development will again distribute maize (2625 kg), beans (1050 kg), oil (53 liters), and salt to the neediest." I will keep you posted, how much money I could raise. Thanks to everyone who already ordered and donated!

The next Workshop about my African recorder music is at Mollenhauer in Fulda on June 12/13, and in the hessischen music Academy in Schlitz from November 12 to November 14. I will report as quickly as possible if the workshops can actually take place because of the legal restrictions or not. Lets hope for the best!
