Wow great music making today
Today was a big day for Amici. We had our annual fundraiser at Grano Restaurant, with guest artist, Music Director of the Toronto Symphony, Peter Oundjian. He played on violin with Amici,( He was the former 1st violinist of the Tokyo String Quartet ) There were some moments this afternoon that were so beautiful and moving, that you could not hear a pin drop from the audience ! They performed a fantastically special rendition of Mozart's Clarinet Quintet.A very special afternoon indeed! I have not that level of music making in a long time! I was very, very impressed, happy and proud to be Amici's Executive Director!
Later on tonight, Caroline and I jammed together, (with Caroline's NEW guitar ) , and we also made some great music together.. Although of course on a totally different level.. all though the intent was there to do so !
