Hellos and Goodbyes…

We are so darn lucky in Cleveland to have the breadth and quality of independent (i.e. non-institutional-driven) musicians that we do. Audience members at Tuesday night’s show at the Happy Dog saw wonderful playing not only from independent performing professionals, but graduate students and alumni from the Cleveland Institute of Music, Cleveland State University, and insanely creative, non-affiliated performing artists.

Sonatas by Chopin, Le Clair, and Schumann… excerpts from concertos, a bit of Scott Joplin, and some original piano/voice artistry all graced the stage (and more).

We said hello to several first timers, including violinists John Bian and Genevieve Gilbert…

…and a very poignant farewell to the queen of Cleveland’s cabaret-style scene, Megan Elk (a.k.a Miss Alexandra Huntington).

We had to creatively solve a piano-malfunction challenge (masking tape and pencils from the bar may have been involved), and there was no shortage of laughter and smiles.

We hope to see you at one of our next shows! Every first Tuesday and The Euclid Tavern (University Circle), and every third Tuesday at The Happy Dog (Gordon Square).
