I was lucky to choose the recital at Trinity United Church yesterday on our first brilliant summer afternoon. Erica Skowron and Angela Alba treated the privileged few to a beautiful recital on piano, oboe and cor anglais, wonderfully varied programme, including a bonus, "Death swims in the water", a premiere performance of a new composition by José Delgado-Guevara.
These first efforts in playing in a small ensemble were very worthwhile, both musically and personally. Our group improved significantly in just a few months, and it was very rewarding to see that we could play well enough to bring some pleasure to the residents in some of our local care facilities.
. I embarked on learning the clarinet at 68years to fulfil a life wish to play a musical instrument in a group situation,
We really enjoyed the Nov.9 concert -Rhapsody in Blue was wonderful!! Everything else was great but that was outstanding -
It's been absolutely delightful having music back in my life again!
Wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed the concert last night.
I met a young lady who had never heard of Gershwin,can you imagine that?
Anyway, she’s young and was impressed with your rendition as we were and she is going to do some research on Gershwin. It was a lovely evening and thank you very much for it.
Very exciting and so transformative and positive!
I just want to say I have thoroughly enjoyed learning to play and hopefully
you will be able to offer class again.
