Hey, everyone! Just figured it was time for some happy news, after the ugliness I’ve been dealing with on my FB page. And it was just time for an update of any sort here…
So the money was raised. The piano was acquired. Jesse and I have both been so happy with this addition to our household! And again, thank you from the bottom of our hearts!
As part of that, we got the CD’s compiled and printed. We printed copies of scores, and I spent an afternoon happily signing my autograph on disks and booklets I think well over four hundred times. These CD’s and scores and manuscript pages were put in the mail, and with only a few minor mishaps (and if anyone else’s frame arrived in shards and haven’t told us, please do? we want to make that up to you) all of these arrived in your hands.
So that leaves only one set of donor gifts to come, the music I’d said I’d compose for those top-level donors.
So the biggest reason I haven’t posted here in ages is because I’ve been writing, just not writing text. I’m happy to report that, especially while I was working in Berlin these last couple weeks, I got a LOT of writing done, and I’m now editing and polishing the music while I prepare the engraved copies on my laptop.
There are still a few aspects of this which I think could just a bit more perfectly express my gratitude and I’m still tinkering with them. However, I REALLY hope you like the final result!
And… There’s possibility already of a good friend of mine, a pianist in NYC, might just make a recording of these for us. He’d play them SOOO much better than I would just yet. More on that as more is known…
So I haven’t forgotten. Progress is being made! Just wanted to give you an update. =]
