What's S-t-r-e-t-c-h-i-n-g me now?

A Spring Recital

 If you've been reading along for several months, you may remember that I started playing the saxophone again earlier this year.  This has truly been a delight so far (despite the sore bottom lip and frustration over the notes not coming out just right).  In a way, it has been like riding a bicycle; although, I still have a ways to go to where I think I was before (and where I'd like to be in the future).
 
At any rate, as my playing continued, our family thought it would be really cool to have a neighborhood recital in our own house.  So… this Saturday, we hosted our first recital.  It was a blast!  The recital featured seveal budding piano players – including Isaac playing A Short Story, Cindy (with Hannah), and Star Wars (with me).  The recital also included a trumpet player and two violin players.  Hannah played Cindy (with Isaac) and Ragtime Special.  I had the opportunity to "bust it out" on Etude Op. 10, No. 3 by Chopin and Harlem Nocturne by Hagen.
 
At the end of the recital, there were multiple requested for scheduling the next recital – perhaps in the fall.
 
Until the next post, I'll be looking for the next piece to play…
