As I have grown as an artist, I have been exploring lots of different options as a musician – many that I have shared with you in this blog. But this year is different. More focused. More music.
Each week, you can look forward to receiving a free harp meditation or a free guided meditation from my catalog, delivered to your inbox (if you have signed up for my newsletter), or right here in the blog. You’ll get solo harp meditations and guided meditations covering topics such as Reclaiming Your Artistic Confidence with Stewart Blackburn or Communicating with Your Departed Loved Ones with Uma Girish.
And each week, I offer some words of inspiration to accompany you on your journey into the world, along with some beautiful photographs that I have personally taken on my journeys. I hope you enjoy them.
As performances and other newsworthy events come up, I’ll share them here as well.
ENCORE: THE LAST QUEEN OF HAWAII
If you’ve been following me for a while, you know that I have a passion for arranging and performing the music of Queen Lili’uokalani, the last monarch of Hawaii, who was overthrown in 1893, and died in 1917.
This time, I had the honor of performing in one of Hilo’s fine Lyman House Museum. As the opening performance of the Saigo Series, I had the deep pleasure of again teaming up with the the amazing Jackie Pualani Johnson as the Queen, and Kathy Dorn on flute. These are our fourth and fifth performances.
Each time we perform this piece, we refine it, tighten it, deepen it. And it shows. There was not a dry eye in the house, and we have been asked repeatedly to take this show to other places. We may start looking for grants.
OPENING FOR ONE NEW HARP STUDENT
If you have been thinking about studying harp with me, now is the time. My teaching calendar is filling, and I only have one more opening for a new student right now. Is it you?
I am recording two new CDs this year. The long-awaited Christmas CD, and a CD of favorites and requests. Do you have a favorite song? Let me know, and I’ll see if I can get it on my CD.
