So I’ve been working on Spanish. There is a website where I can practice my writing and get crowdsourced corrections. I wrote a little note about our Carnegie Concert Series performance (and a concert my students put on Thursday). Here it is!
Esta noche voy a ir a un concierto en el que mis estudiantes tocarán la percusión. Es el último concierto del año. Me divertí mucho con la mayoría de estos estudiantes. Dos tríos tocarán por la marimba y dos piezas más grandes, incluyendo “Mah-na mah-na”, de Los Muppets. Depués , me iré a Nueva York a tocar con un flautista. La música es muy dificil y espero estar listo. “¡Deséame suerte!”
If you told me two months ago that I would learn how to install floor tiles and play a xylophone solo with a wonderful community band, I would have said you were lying about both! Well, I’m not going to ask you to check out the new floor tiles I just installed in the entryway of my house, but I am going to ask you to join me and the City of Fairfax Band in a performance at my high school alma mater, W.T. Woodson High School, this Saturday, May 11, at 8pm where I will be performing The Golden Age of the Xylophone arranged by Randy Eyles and Floyd Werle. It’s going to be a great time and I hope to see you there!
Have you missed us? We know you have! We’re gearing up for a Spring of shows. Until then, you can watch our recent performance from the Kennedy Center Concert Hall online. Check us out at this link. We go on around minute 140.
Tell your friends about us and like us on facebook. Thank you SO MUCH for your continued support of Lawler & Fadoul.
We’ll be playing a 15-minute set tomorrow night, including two of our new Bach and Shostakovich transcriptions. The program is part of the National Symphony Orchestra’s Young Soloists’ Competition, which Paul won back in the day.
You can watch a live webcast at this link. We’re on around 7:45–hope you can be there.
This morning, we happened to eat breakfast next to an a capella group called the Overtones. As I was backing out of the parking spot, the Overtones were in the street. What happens when you hit the Overtones? It turns out…they die. So I decided not to hit any Overtones.
