NOTES from MARTIN ESPINO:
- While you read, click PLAY on the “Site Player” below and listen to about 80 minutes of music!!!
- Watch the cool videos posted here too!
- Because of the COVID virus, as of March 13, 2020, “all” of my scheduled performances; library performances; school residencies; and instrument making workshops were cancelled with no rescheduling in site as of yet. I lost several thousand dollars! Other professional musicians who work as frequently as I do have had the same thing happen! We basically lost our physical full-time careers because of this thing!!! I'm hearing that many of us are resorting to self-produce "live streaming" concerts and teaching online. I now have to re-invent my career, yet pay my bills…that this turn of events will change the way us musicians will work and live for many years to come!

Martin Espino performs with the
BRASS BAND of BATTLE CREEK
MAY 15 – 19, 2019
It was an honor to take the stage with fantastic “classical” musicians and “read’ all the music, thereby elevating the status of our indigenous Mexicano instruments as equals to The Western European symphonic instruments. I wish to thank the BBBC, John Harper, Jim Gray, the Kellogg Foundation and all the kind and friendly musicians and the gracious people of Battle Creek!!!
