Today's Peninsula Clarion Article: "Time-honored Tunes"

If I'd known the press was going to show up to the dress rehearsal, I probably would have gussied up a bit instead of showing up in a grubby shirt and pony tail. Luckily, they didn't get too personal and left me in the background of the photo they used for the front-page article in the Peninsula Clarion. It's a pretty good read, and explains the gist of our annual Evening of Classics concert. You can also catch a glimpse of some of the wonderful people I get to join on the stage. The article doesn't really do justice to their hard work, incredible skill, and beautiful hearts. (Also, they incorrectly depicted me as the wise-crack of the bunch, when everyone knows I should only be taken very seriously. Very. Seriously.)

Nice piece, Emily. And you look fine!

I love hearing about the various musical communities you are involved in...a lot to be said for living where you have to make your own kind of music.

Great article, Emily! I would've loved to be there! And yes, you are extremely serious. Never a smile or a joke, ever.....

Michael, I wish you could have been there, too! I forgot to record the Bruch (No. VI and II) for you--you'd have been proud of me and Tammy, and several people said they liked the viola best of all. :) I'll send you a link to the Brahms, though. We plan on featuring more Bruch pieces and the Brahms in its entirety in a recital in the near future.

I loved the references to what it's like in your locale. And pretty clever--getting money from people who wouldn't normally go to your concerts by designing a concert for them!
