Concert and Montauk

The concert performance was a great experience. Although a concert at 10 AM is not as customary as a concert at 1 PM or 7 or 8 PM we did our very bestand I was able to video the entire performance. Working on and performing the gorgeous and rarely played "Intermezzo" (featured in film of same title in the 1940's starring Ingrid Bergman and Leslie Howard) by Heinz Provost was a treat to play.

This past weekend I travelled out to Montauk NY for a beachside performance.
The staff of the venue, Gurney's Inn, is great. They are very professional and hospitable. The inn sets above the sea and the views are magnificent.
The performance was by just me as a Solo Violinist for a ceremony held at the beach. The music was a mix of soft romantic classical and contemporary songs old n new for the seating of the guests. The Processionals were "Air" from Watermusic (appropriate for the seaside setting!) and "Canon in D" by Pachelbel for the bride.
The Recessional was as in the home page of our website: Selection is...
"Ode to Joy" by Beethoven flowing into "All You Need is Love" by the Beatles. For exit pieces I also performed "Here Comes the Sun" and "When I'm 64".
The Bride and Groom were beautiful and looked very happy after the ceremony as they went onto the beach itself for more pics!
Afterwards I travelled out to Monatauk Pt. with my hubby who was travelling with me for the day and we enjoyed the area and the lighthouse and took some pretty photos out there. We then travelled up to Sag Harbor where I was able to do a little shopping and enjoy the pretty harbor itself.
All in all 6/5/10 was a beautiful day!
