Winter/Spring Performance

Upon my return to Spring Ridge Park Assisted Living Facility, I had the opportunity to play for residents I had performed for several times before as well as new residents who had recently moved into the home.  I played several patriotic works: “Battle Hymn of the Republic, “The Caisson Song,” and Robert Schumann’s “Soldier’s March,” an energetic work originally written for piano.  Also included in the nine-piece set was a classical guitar rendition of Beethoven’s “Ode to Joy,” a piece that several of the residents hummed along with.  Andrew York’s classical work “Snowflight” evokes the image of snowflakes falling from the sky, a piece which augered the May snowstorm that arrived in the Colorado mountains a few days later!
