My First House Concert 

It's been awhile since I have posted anything to this blog.  My apologies!  The last year has been incredibly busy with a move to a new house and the addition of our third child.  We are finally settling in to life as a family of five, and even get to sleep through the night sometimes!  In the midst of all the life changes, I found a little time to practice and dream, and Indie Musikhaus was born.

As it stands today, Indie Musikhaus is a series of once-a-quarter private concerts held in my living room.  The first was held a couple of weeks ago.  My dad and I played classical piano and fourteen of my friends graciously gathered to listen to us play.  We had a blast!  The programme was made up of "my" Bach Toccata in C minor, Liszt's Liebestraum No. 3, Anton Dvorak's Slavic Dances Nos. 4 and 2 for four hands, and "The Alcotts" from Charles Ives' Concord Sonata.  We had munchies before, during, and after; great conversation; and a fun time enjoying music! 

My hope is for Indie Musikhaus to become a network of house concerts for musicians in the greater Seattle area with opportunities not only to perform, but also to network with other musicians and patrons, to create new music, and to encourage each other in our art.  You are welcome to read a little more about it here!

Below, feel free to click on the link to download the .mp3 of me playing Liszt's Liebestraum Notturno No. 3 at the last house concert.  Be forewarned - this is raw, unedited material, played on what my mom calls my "honky tonk" piano! 

Until next time...
