- WICKED (wonderful musical!)
- BROOKLYN TABERNACLE (excellent music, worship & sermon by Rev. Jim Cymbala)
- CARNEGIE HALL (My reason for going--to hear my student, 14 year old Gabe Smallwood's winning composition for orchestra & chorus premiered)
My most gracious host and Gabe's musical mentor, Ivy Spera opened her home and heart to me. And she opened doors for my Gabe!
We ate, laughed, talked, ate, played piano, sang, ate, walked, went sight-seeing, and cried together at Wicked.
I couldn't muster a whistle at Carnegie so I clapped, cheered and cried some more.
This was nighttime but the lights of Time Square made it seem like day.
BROOKLYN TABERNACLE CHURCH
In the program I turned first to Gabe's page and was shocked to see he honored me by claiming me as his piano teacher!
Looks like JayZ follows Gabe! I'll pass on that.
You can see the Statue of Liberty here from our subway as we cross Brooklyn Bridge.
Dog with Kat at Starbucks. . .of course!
