Note: In the day’s between / around New Year’s – there are plenty of activities… today’s activities include hanged up the New Year’s decoration, drinking all the coffee to try to wake up & thwart headache, then going to an afternoon friends party/talent show where we will be singing a duet with Ryoko on piano.
Our selection is a modified (taking out the sort of dodgy creepy lyrics) version of “Bewitched, Bothered and Bewildered” with an arrangement vaguely based on this lovely scene in TV programme “The Crown”￼￼ season 1.
Do not expect video documentation of our performance though we diligently practiced and made a special vocal arrangement with some trade offs and whatnot.
However, I will present some insta-photos as evidence and to provide a bit of flavour of the 5th annual Kojo Piano Club (there was even a theme song) party / event in which all the friends (many of whom, perform or learn together) perform music in various ensembles, plus usual eating, drinking and frivolity.
Update: In case you were wondering, our song went pretty good… A lot of fun musical performances, the floor filled with sheet music￼… So much wonderful food! Sushi to pizza to cheesecake and many points in between.
My kaki (persimmon) jam with well received as well as my “show and tell” item of two recent books of postboxes and paintings.
Thanks to Sachiko Kojo & awesome husband for hosting.
