Another Saturday musically disappeared

We spent most of the afternoon and evening at Eastman yesterday. Kate had a piano jury for which she played scales, the Chopin etude below, a Bach prelude and fugue, Barber’s Pas de Deux, and a movement from a Beethoven sonata. She also played in the first ever Community school recital in Hatch Recital Hall on a piano that sounded extraordinarily like butter. Gorgeous space for sound! And then she and I went to dinner and to hear Jon Nakamatsu (pianist) play with the RPO. Awesome day… you know, if one has nothing of her own to get done! Oh well. Today? We slept in and paid no attention to that pesky clock thing everyone’s nattering on about. Enjoy!


About pattiblaine

Raised under the name of Snyder in the upstate NY town of Vestal, I've worked as a typesetter, a fast food salad bar tender, an art reviewer, a waitress, a part-time nanny, and a very-bad-with-phones temp. Once upon a time I was all-but-thesis toward a Masters in Art History. Now I'm just a mom with a lot of fiber squirreled away throughout the house. We call it insulation. In 2013 I completed a life-long learning program at Colgate Rochester Crozer Divinity School, and am a postulant toward the diaconate in the Episcopal Diocese of Rochester, NY. In addition to coordinating volunteers for the soup kitchen, I volunteer as a tutor at a deeply impoverished city elementary school, and am a docent at the Memorial Art Gallery.
