Happy New Year!

I hope you had a nice holiday season! I spent my holiday at my husband’s mom’s house with his family in Indiana, U. S. Of course each year is different, but we try to get together with as many members as possible.  I enjoyed playing games, eating and chatting, and cooking/cleaning to help my mother-in-law— as most of us do for holidays. There is a spinet piano (possibly not well-maintained!) sitting in the living room at her house so I practiced Goldberg Variations when people were not around much. For us pianists finding a piano to practice is one of the hardest things. I have a portable/roll up piano and a small electric keyboard to carry on traveling, but those keyboards are little bit miserable to practice. I use them at hotel rooms if it is really needed. Anyway my 2012 is going nicely. I played several variations from Goldberg at church’s service to bring back my performance mind. I get really nervous if I don’t perform front people for a while. My Goldberg journey in 2012 will start this Saturday 14 at 4pm at First United Methodist Church of Pasadena, then in Florida later. Besides my life-time dream piece, Goldberg Variations, I have interesting programs to play this spring-summer!
