Spirit of Christ Lutheran Church – Lake City, FL

It was an honor to be invited to play music for this special service, in memory of someone well-loved. I always feel fortunate in this setting to catch a glimpse of how a person’s life will be remembered by their family and friends.

And good memories are often tied to music! A favorite hymn, Morning Has Broken, was the sending music.

I was invited to play some harp music as part of Night of the Arts at Hartley Elementary School this week! Quite an event to be a part of – on site were several musicians, bands, a dance troupe, food trucks – and of course the whole school building completely decked out with students’ art work and sculpture.

With what I played I wanted to keep it light and fun with a little something for everybody…some Disney songs, radio pop, a few classics and I threw in some Beatles and U2 to round it out 🙂

Daytona Beach Symphony Guild

I got to spend a lovely Saturday morning playing in the beautiful lobby of the Daytona Beach Hilton Hotel, as the Daytona Symphony Guild put on their fundraising luncheon – a beautiful day with a fabulous view of the ocean! The theme of this event was Rhapsody in Blue, so of course I made sure to do a little George Gershwin 🙂
