This week we had our first concert with Legal Harmony, Stewarts Law's choir, that I have been working with for 6 six weeks now. I'm to this day astonished to the level of commitment, good singing and charisma displayed by my choir! They completely went for it, and I can't tell you enough how much fun it was! Looking forward to seeing them after the Easter break and prepare all the events we have lined up in June!
Also this week, Alba Acevedo and myself played at the Foundling Museum, as part of the Young Spanish Performers Concert series, supported by NLO, Instituto Cervantes and the Spanish Embassy. The atmosphere of that room is very special and unique, surrounded by original furniture and magnificent pictures. The piano is a jewel in its own right. I was going to take a picture of it to post it here, but forgot with the heat of the moment. I'm coming back next month with Carla Sabater (trombone) so, I'll shall not forget again.
Alba and I had a great time at the Foundling Museum, and we believe that the programe was very well received, which being 100% Spanish is very nice to feel. We played Granados, Falla, Casals and Cassadó together, whilts Alba played to Suite for cello of Cassadó on her own, and I performed some pieces of Aita Donostia and El Puerto from Albéniz written for piano. We are very much looking forward to play the programme again soon!
And I think I'm going to leave it here for today! I'll be back shortly to give all the info about the Anglo Spanish Society concert this coming Thursday, 12th April at St Peter's Church in Eaton Sq. I was just reminded that I haven't been clear with the date and venue, since we had to make some adjusments.. My apologies. This is now the correct info, and I'm very much hoping to see you all there!
