Hooten's Haydn. And a New Website.

Today is a big day for our friend and client Tom Hooten, a terrific musician who is making his solo debut with the Los Angeles Philharmonic. Noted British early music specialist Andrew Manze is in town to conduct a program entitled "Brilliant Brass" Feb. 6 - 8, 2015. Tickets:

Tom is stepping out from his principal's chair to play Haydn's Trumpet Concerto.

Bravo, Tom!

His new website also debuts today:, which our firm designed, photographed and produced.

We met Tom last year and began a dialogue about ways to increase his marketing reach. He really liked our clean, modern style and our work for other clients, especially our website for physical therapy practice Movement Links. Tom asked us to create a new website and extend his "brand reach." As an experienced performer, teacher and clinician, Tom needed a site to describe the various facets of his work, and also offer resources for students. His previous site was inadequate for his current needs.

The new site is a custom design, and incorporates two sections which Tom can edit himself (Performances and News pages). It also contains his Twitter feed and links to recordings and videos and press kit. Kudos to our colleague Tom Ferguson who handled web development for this project.

The iconic silver exterior of Walt Disney Concert Hall in downtown L.A. provided a natural backdrop for location photos. A big thank you to Vic Pallos for stunning new photography. The home page really "sings" with that dramatic opening shot!
