Yesterday and Today

Yesterday over a dozen members gathered for a very special musicale, a recital presented by Keng Siong Sim (cello) and Simon Finlow (piano). While much more could be said about them, Keng obtained his Master of Music degree at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst and is also an accomplished pianist (winner of the 2012 Washington International Piano Artists Competition), and Simon earned a PhD in music from King’s College, Cambridge, and a Masters degree in computer science. The duo played two movements from a Vivaldi sonata, a Brahms sonata, and a delightful piece, Requiebros, by Gaspar Cassado, a 20th century Spanish cellist. From the baroque of Vivaldi to the romantic of Brahms to the very Spanish, very flamboyant Cassado, each movement was played very convincingly by Keng and Simon. We welcome them any time!

Today is Utako’s birthday! Please join me in wishing her many happy returns!
