NaBloPoMo Day 4!
A couple of pianos from my San Diego whirlwind Theremin Concerto première tour didn’t make it into my previous KOTW post, because I shot them with my cell phone camera and hadn’t yet transferred them to the computer.
Here they are in all their lo-res glory — 2 shots of the piano at the Del Mar Country Club, one of the venues where the Theremin Concerto was performed. These are valuable photos — I managed to snap them right before security escorted me off the property! 😉
It was a strange experience, having my music performed at a concert I never would have been able to afford to attend any other way. Perhaps it was made stranger by my low blood sugar; there was a swanky reception with hors d’oeuvres and drinks before the concert, but all the hors d’oeuvres had caviar sprinkled on top (I think they have a rule about that), and this bohemian vegetarian doesn’t dig that jive (and if you think I’m crazy to turn up my nose at free caviar, think of it this way: I’m just leaving more of it in the world for everybody else!).
Later on, I was talking about the event to someone I know who has more experience than I do running in such sophisticated circles. I remarked that I felt like everyone was looking at me as if I didn’t belong there. She replied, “Oh, they all look at each other that way, too!”
I felt better. 😀
