Recital is Over!

I did it -- I made it all the way through the recital without throwing up, and we ALL did awesome!  I am partial to my son's performance, which was spectacular.  He is such a brillant pianist!!

On tap for this week -- a Christmas party and playing carols before eating lots of junk food!  Oh my, how I do love playing the cello!!

Recital Tomorrow

Tomorrow afternoon is my son's Senior Recital.  I had hoped to record him, but he has decided to record himself using our Church's soundboard and video camera.  I think he wants to make a professional DVD of his performance.  It is OK, really, I don't mind.  I think I am ready to play my parts:
  • An Invention by Bach (rearranged by DJ Hepburn for cello, piano, and violins)
  • Christmas Time is Here Again (cello and piano)
  • O Come, O Come Emmanuel (arranged by DJ Hepburn for cello, piano, and violins)
  • Handel's Hallelujah Chorus for piano, cello and violins
In addition to our part, my son is playing:
  1. Fantaisie-Impromptu in C-sharp minor by Chopin
  2. Fantasy in D minor  by Mozart
  3. Arabesque No. 1 by Debussey
  4. Carol of the Bells (Ukrainian Bell Carol, traditional, arranged by DJ Hepburn)
It should be a great day, and I am so excited to be a part of his senior program.
