Hadn’t realized how much I missed….
Performing! So Post Covid, I’ve participated in some outdoor concerts for kids for Oakland Park and Recreation through the Oakland Symphony. Yes, I’ve played a driveway concert and look forward to doing more of that. I’ve also participated in a few recording projects. I’ve also had the pleasure of sheltering at home with my daughter who is a wonderful cellist and playing some Bach and Villa Lobos with her.
And when one plays multiple live concerts a month for years for a lot of different people in a lot of different venues, having it suddenly all go away is a bit of a shock to the system. So when Ensemble LudeCanta Artistic Director C.A. Jordan asked if we could do the solo selections from our concerts we were prepping for April, I jumped on the chance to perform Valerie Coleman’s wonderful Danza de la Mariposa again. Here is a link to the St. Ignatius YouTube feed where I joined my colleagues Lori Hennessy, C.A. Jordan and Linli Wang for the St. Ignatius Thursday Concert series. Here is the link. https://youtu.be/O80IE-9VAUw
We really miss making music for all of you, live and in person! And yes, this is the best we can do for the moment!
