One Ocean – Atlantic Beach, FL


, , , ,

Honored to be invited back again this year to play for the Donor Memorial Event with RTI Donor Services. This is such a special event to be part of, and its so touching to hear each family share about their loved one. One Ocean Resort had just the right atmosphere for the day.

So thankful for families who, even in the most difficult times, are generously willing to help save or improve the life of another through organ and tissue donation!

Osprey Village

This was such a fun event to play! Osprey Village went all out to plan a spectacular “Dinner and a Movie” event 🙂 I was invited to play some dinner music, before Cleopatra came on the big screen. The whole room became ancient Egypt, as you can see from the impressive backdrop, lighting and columns.  To suit the mood, I did some classic movie themes, a little Broadway, as well as some golden-era classics. A great evening!

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.

Hartley Elementary School

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 🙂
