Late summer 2008 news

Margaret had surgery on her right hand on August 11th to correct the last injuries from the car accident that she had in 2003. The surgery went very well, and Margaret and her doctors are very hopeful for the improvement of the function of her right hand! Margaret is currently recuperating in Portland, Oregon. She hopes to return to performing in early November, 2008. In late October, 2008, after finishing her hand therapy, Margaret will be moving back to the New York City area, where she resided before her move to Portland. She is looking forward to being closer to her family in Brooklyn, and continuing her performing, composing and painting pursuits on the east coast. Margaret also plans to continue her work playing for patients in hospitals, and doing music & art workshops in the schools. She also hopes to do a NYC CD release concert for her recently released "For the Moment" quartet CD, which was originally recorded in NYC in 1989. This CD contains Margaret's original compositions, and features Margaret on electric guitar, Fred Hersch on piano, Michael Formanek on bass, and Michael Sarin on drums.
