Bach's B minor Mass at the Winspear

A small sketch while waiting for the Richard Eaton Singers and the Alberta Baroque Ensemble to assemble on stage, for a performance of J.S.Bach's Mass in B Minor... one of my favourite compositions by my favourite composer of all time. This was the second live performance of this piece that I have experienced (the other was by Pro Coro, a much smaller choir several years ago). It's wonderful to experience the music this way as so many new discoveries about the music are made.

Hina-matsuri 2014

 March 3rd is Hina-matsuri in Japan, commonly referred to as "Girls' Day" or "Doll Day". We were blessed to have received an elaborate set of Hina dolls last summer which we set up this year in our dining room. Unfortunately, we seemed to be missing a series of dolls and other decorative pieces, but we replaced them with some stuffed toys and a bed sheet to make a fun and eclectic, "localized" version of a traditional custom.
