On March 14, 2009, a group of people passionate about songwriting gathered at Home Brew Coffee Company in San Dimas and showcased their songs for the night. Each person showcased 2 songs they wrote for the FAWM challenge. It was nice to meet the musicians in person. Wonderful music rang and danced around the place, swirling with the warm and awakening aroma of coffee. I am glad to have been a part of it.

One of the songs I played was Black & White.

And here’s the wonderful poster designed for the event by Steven Guiles:

the way Yo Yo Ma sees it

Concerto in F by Gershwin is beautiful & moving. Of course the famous Gershwin piece, Rhapsody in B, is exhilarating, but Concerto in F has a different scent of beauty in it, it opened my ears.

I attended Jean-Yves Thibaudet’s performance on Concerto in F @ Walt Disney Concerto Hall on Feb 12, 2009, it was my first time listening to that piece of music and my ears welcomed it very much, and a smile was put on my face while I was listening to it. Hadn’t felt such genuine happiness in a long time.
