Wednesday June 3, Virtual Musicale Narrative

Updated: Jun 4, 2020

We had the first virtual musicale of the month of June via Zoom at 2 p.m. on Wednesday June 3rd. Attendees were : Utako Tanigawa, Ed Ewing, Anna Armstrong, Carol Wazlavek, Arlene Martinides, Tom Slavicek, Judy Manganiello and Shoko Tanaka. Firstly Shoko played her work-in-progress piece; Schumann’s Fantasiestücke op.12 no.2 “Aufshwung (Soaring)”. Next Judy played Chopin’s Nocturne in B flat minor op.9 no.1 very beautifully. Her second play via Zoom was successful in both aspects, music and technology! Lastly Utako played Chopin’s Waltz op.34 no.1 “Valse Brillante”, she said still Work-In-Progress but presented very well its elegant and delightful elements of this piece. After the performances, members shared their updates on their lives and also information regarding audio technologies. Also we talked about the challenges and struggles of music that the are playing and advised each other. In addition, Tom shared his recent activities and presented his beautiful leather art works. Those are absolutely gorgeous!

Next Virtual Musicale will be Thursday June 11th at 11 a.m. We hope to see you all there!

Dear Shoko-san, Nothing to apologize. I do this kind of mistakes all the time! I cannot remember most people's last names, either :-(

いいね!

I am so sorry about the mistake on Carol's last name! I have updated. We are looking forward to Ed's composition by synthesizer!

Dear Shoko-san, Thank you so much for your lovely narrative. Yes, we enjoyed the time together. Tom's art work is outstanding! Ed shared the story of his composition by Synthesizer, which he will submit to the upcoming Online Recital. One change: Kwiatkowski is Kimber's last name, which is Polish name. She couldn't attend today. Carol's last name is Wazlavek. She explained it's a Czech's name. Both are difficult to pronounce and spell...

It seems Japanese names are easier...not?

Thanks again for your charming Schumann!

Utako
