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 🙂

Such a pleasure to be invited back again this year to play some harp music for Valentine’s Day dinner! The residents and staff at Oakmonte Village Assisted Living are so friendly, and they really do it up fancy for Valentine’s Day – decorations, a special menu, and live music ♥

I had a good time playing some music that everyone could hum along to – classic favorites of all eras….My Funny Valentine, Danny Boy, Til There Was You & Clair de Lune.

Always fun to play for such a great audience!

Christmas Party – Daytona Beach

Marina Grande Condos – Daytona Beach, FL

One of the stand-out parties I played for this Christmas season!  I was booked as a surprise for the party hosts by their good friends – so fun to knock at the door half hour before the party started 🙂

A very lovely Christmas gathering, held in a high-rise condo with a spectacular river view. I was originally booked for 1 hour, but I ended up being invited to play for 3! Always a pleasure to play those special holiday songs that make up the season’s soundtrack, especially for gatherings like this one among special friendships.

Hope you and yours have had a magical Christmas season!
