Celebrating a Year

11-5-16A long but very rewarding day. P & I drive to NYC, leave our car in a garage, take the subway to Luiz’, run over our arrangements, go to Hunter College, sound check, play our set with intense focus and gratifyingly great results, enjoy the other performers in the festival, meet the Brazilian ambassador, sell CDs, chat with our fellow performers, eat in a lovely French restaurant with Luiz & M, retrieve our car, drop them home, navigate to our Airbnb, finally find a parking spot, and 18 hours after it began, bid the day farewell. These are the trials for those of us addicted to music, and those who love us. A tremendous amount of effort expended for those few dazzling moments when we can be one with our instrument, carried by the music, in sync with our partner, creating our own unique contribution to the aggregate beauty of the world.
