A recital, a Chamber Orchestra concert

I doubt I will ever be able to spell embouchure without a dictionary.

This is the busy season when it comes to music. With multiple performances each week and the tizzy of the quarter ending at school, I'm lucky to see Dan for large chunks of time.

He had his faculty recital last month—a quite enjoyable affair followed by reception.

This year we were able to comfortably entertain colleagues, students, friends and family at the house, which is proving to be a fine setting for such events.

And last week there was a performance by the university's Chamber Orchestra in which Dan was a featured soloist. I'm sharing two of the movements for your enjoyment. They blend together at 9 minutes in length. New word (for me) bonus: attacca means no pause between movements.

That is so cool. I can't wait to listen after work. I used to perform on that piano - I was a music minor at WSU, graduating in '04 with a communication degree. Sometimes I wish I had double majored. Now I hardly play the piano anymore and miss it so much! And I love the wonderful accompanist Amy! She is such a great pianist! She and I had the same piano teacher growing up, Mrs. Oost, and also in college, Dr. Leung.
