Today played solo cello for a small group of people for a bubs christening, in the library at Hayfield Manor a five star hotel in Cork.
The guests drank coffee and chatted whilst I served them up a feast of music…Bach suites, Irish airs from my book, Pour Una Cabeza, Liebeslied, Swan lake, West Side story cello parts (I practiced for the upcoming show at Cork Opera House once they went in for lunch as they wanted me to continue for a while whilst they were served…don’t think anyone noticed that I was playing the cello part of ‘America’, ‘Maria’ etc, with no melody happening…)
Mozart was requested so I played Romanza from Eine Kleine Nacht music
Most loved was Pour Una Cabeza, and asked for as soon as I finished playing it, was Moon River…
The baby’s name was Katie, so I sang her K-K-K-Katie…very sweet and crazy in long white gown…
