Performing Vignettes for Trumpet and Percussion by James M. Stevenson III
Drove up from Farm Day, threw on some pants and got to Dan’s recital just in time.
The months of preparation paid off and we were treated to a great performance, and no, I’m not biased.
I have to say, I welled up a little seeing the last piece played out with Dan and his bestest friend “Brown”
on percussion. They’ve known each other since doing a tour in Italy and haven’t stopped gabbing since. In fact, I think she’s his #1 on speed dial. I’d be jealous if she wasn’t so groovy.
When they came out for their bow (photo), I was flush with joy.
A reception followed where we packed 40 colleagues, family and friends into our apartment. So packed it was hard to get from one side of the room to another. Mental note: next party, organize a drink station and put a ladle in the mulled cider.
Big shout out thanks to my mom for coming, helping me get the food out, and for this recipe:
PUMPKIN DIP (so easy, I couldn’t mess it up)
