I have received a message from a well-known source that preliminary plans are underway for a 2-day piano gathering on beautiful Old Cape Cod.

Added following note from novalinda (one of the hosts)...

"It's official. The date for the Piano Party is Sat. Oct.10. It will be in Orleans on the Cape and hosted by the same trio as 2 years ago.
The Sun. Oct 11 brunch is still not set in stone. The Howes would like to host it again but are waiting on their children's regatta schedule.

To answer some previous questions. It usually begins around noon and goes to whenever. The time distance from Providence is about 1 1/2 hours.

I'll post more info as we have more planning sessions.

We will have 5 more guests from central NY who are not members but hope to come. If so, they are fine musicians and good listeners (and good cooks).

Hope many more will be coming. Just 3 1/2 months away. It's a great time of year on the Cape.

Linda Gloo"





Anyone interested??!!

i think we have family weekend at yale that weekend, but if the schedule allows, i would love to be there, since i'll be in the vicinity (or at least, closer than montana!)

i'll pencil it in and hope it will work out.

if it turned out to be the following weekend, it might be easier to commit, but again, it's a pencil, not a pen, at this point.

Bump.

Come on Folks, this is a great Time!

Think about it:

~ Cape Cod in the Fall
~ Pianos To Play
~ Fellow Pianist to Hang out With
~ Great Food & Drink
~ Beautiful Scenery
~ Beaches & Sand Dunes
~ Lighthouses
~ The Canal
~ Quaint Bed & Breakfast Inns
~ Good Company

Geesh, it's a no-brainer.

Put your name on the list, you'll figure out how to
get there in time.

Testing for Frank -

It is now off the Piano Forums page and I had to hunt for it.

Odd that a few others were able to respond to it before me.

I think they responded before I made it a forums-wide "announcement".

Apparently you can't reply when it's set up that way.

I was just trying to spread the word to the other forums, as not many people think to look here.

Looking forward to seeing everyone there.

So, Lilylady, are you joining us?

We need to get people replying to the tread to get an idea
of head count. Plus, we'd like to know who is coming.

I am going to try! Loved it when I was there before.

It is a little early for some of us to commit. I still have my whole gardening season in front of me! And fall jobs.

BTW, Eric, your response was very timely with the Michael song title.

It shows October 2009 on mine.

Sorry Pique', it's still Columbus Day weekend.
Hope you can make it.

If we get the whole gang together again, we can have
Perri, Kerri, Terry, and Jerry in one room again.

I'm still waiting to hear back on the dates.

It's under 2 hours from Providence, and a beautiful ride, particularly if
you take scenic route 6A.

We are planning on coming up from S. Florida.

This is great seeing others express an interest especially those of you coming a distance.

What great timing for your East coast visit, Piqué!!

For those who are unaware of LisztAddict's piano adventures, he was up here recently for the Boston Int'l Piano Competition. I'm thrilled to know I'll be able to hear him play this time after having missed his performance during the competition.

hv (Howard)... I've always enjoyed your many contributions and especially the recordings of your wife playing at different events. Very pleased to know we will all have a chance to meet you and Susan (correct??)


Louis XV.. I'd love to see pics of your Steinway if you are able to join us. I didn't see any previously posted.

And as always, Eric, Lilylady, Frank, Ladyford, Woodfab, all our Cape members, this is a fantastic opportunity to meet up with everyone. I hope others who frequent our local gatherings are "psyched" by this event and will chime in to say so.

Thanks to the host families for allowing the plans to be posted at an early date allowing those coming a distance to have advance time to make their travel arrangements.

Thanks for the update Linda!! Hope Jerry's sharing the piano with you!

I've already noticed my practice time has increased! October will be here before you know it!

found out last night that family weekend is oct 9-10-11.

if junior is playing in the saturday football game, we won't be able to make it.

if he isn't, we possibly can.

or if mr. pique decides to bag family weekend, i could be there.

EXCEPT-- our wedding anniversary is on oct. 11th, so i do want to be with mr. pique that weekend.

we probably won't be able to commit before some time in september.

Hello Cape Cod Pianists,

I live on the Oregon Coast - about as far from you Cape Cod as I can get - so I doubt I will be able to join you for your party in October. BUT - I would like some information about your party. It would be wonderful if we could have a West Coast version.

PS I was on the Cape in late April presenting an organ and media concert, "From Sea to Shining Sea" at the Lutheran Church in Orleans. Lovely place - stayed at the historic Inn on the bay in Orleans - quite a treat.

The party starts at about noon (12:00) on Saturday, we will post driving instructions as Oct gets closer. Bring your music and appetite (If you are absolutely driven to show off your favorite receipt please coordinate with Terry Tunes - sorry Terry).
For comments on local hotels read the posts on the first two Cape Cod piano parties.
nb. Woodfab ask for a tour of my (wood)shop.

All the hosts have pets (dogs & cats) and they will be around, but to be fair this is a piano party. If you feel you must bring your dog be prepared to leave him in the car (it should be cool enough in October) or outside on a leash - we will be happy to provide shade and water.

Me, my wife and my 10 yr old son would like to attend the party columbus day weekend. My son and I are the piano players and my wife is a sheep farmer and wool spinner. I restarted practice a few years ago after maybe 20yrs and realized the great opportunity to share something special with my son. We will traveling from our home near Albany, NY. I remember well my youth when I would vacation on the cape and walk out into the bay when the extended tides went out. I look forward to returning and meeting people, making and sharing some music.

That will be great if you can attend. Wife will find friendships with Beelady, Bernard and myself and maybe others whom I am not aware of. All wool lovers and the other two spinners and knitters!

And you, of course will enjoy the other piano addicts!

Put us down for 2 from SE Florida, and 1 (my sister) from north of Boston.

Anyone have a rough head count yet?

Some ideas of where to stay? (Bed & Breakfast, hotels, etc.).

You asked for a list of Motels - so here is a list of some of them:

Skaket Beach Motel in Orleans MA is a right turn off Exit 12 from Rt. 6 and your easiest access to the party. Telephone 1-800-835-0298.

The Cove Motel in Orleans is on Rt. 28 across from the Christmas Tree Shop. www.thecoveorleans.com

The Governor Prence Inn is on Rt 6A near the Christmas Tree Shop. http://www.governorprenceinn.com/

In Eastham on Rt. 6 there are 2 motels next to each other:
One is the Sheraton www.fourpoints.com and the other is
Ocean Park Inn www.oceanparkinn-eastham.com

Also in Orleans is the delightful Nauset House Inn
http://www.nausethouseinn.com/index.htm

And in Eastham THE WHALEWALK INN - EASTHAM, MA - (508) 255-0617

Two motels I don't know much about are:

Seashore Park Inn
24 Canal Road, Orleans, MA
Toll Free Reservations: 1-800-772-6453

Old Tavern Motel & Inn
Rt 6A, Orleans
Phone 800-544-7705

Frank sounds great and Elaine and I will try to come if not for just one of the days. Will be returning late on the 9th from a travel conference in New Jersey. Hope some of those coming will consider going on the cruise in March (see separate thread). We only have a few cabins left. For questions they can email me at dvtravels@hotmail.com

I'm sure I'll figure out a way. The question is getting from Providence to Cape Cod.

Count me in for now.

Definitely count me in. I'll second Ed's recommendation of the Nausett House. I stayed there last time and it was lovely. But, I just called to reserve and they say they have a 2 night minimum. Hmmm - I know I only stayed one night last time. Now I'm trying to decide if I can justify 2 nights away from my family whom I can't convince to come with me.

Peter Pan Bus runs between Providence and Hyannis (Cape Cod) Peter Pan Link.
Unfortunately you will still need a ride to Orleans and there is a Cape Cod regional bus H2O Line.
This is a slow way to do it but it is possible.

Just a guess here, but the 2 night minimum might be because it's a holiday weekend. The last Cape Cod party was not on Columbus Day weekend.

Frank,

I did a rough head count and got 32 definite and 6 maybe's. I would post the list here if I could figure out how to insert an excell worksheet or a Jpeg file into the post. I suspect that some who have not yet said yes (Lilylady, Beelady, Bernard???) might be planning to come.

Ed

nb: The count does not include the 6 (or 9) hosts.

Thanks Ed,
It sounds like it's going to be a strong turnout.

Yes, the others who haven't let us know should jump in soon so we can keep track.

If you use the full reply feature, it's fairly easy to add pictures and attachments. You'll find a host of icons with various functions indicated by mousing over them.

However, the pictures need to be either uploaded to PW (prefered) or some other site so you can point to the full url where they reside.

We are looking forward to this years parties, should be a lot of fun.

I Bring some pictures of the Liberty of the Seas with me. If anyone is "on the fence" for the cruise in March remember the prices will be going up on August 25th. See the separate "thread" on the cruise for info. Can't wait to meet a lot of you on the Cape.

I thought I'd throw out another suggestion for those who are coming a distance and looking for a place to stay. The Cape also offers a large selection of rental homes. For those who are planning to be on the Cape Friday nite to Monday morning, you might find it worth checking into rentals on weneedavacation.com or even craigslist. There might be a little extra clean up in the end but if you're looking to save some $$$$ this could be a good option.

And who knows, you might even find a house rental that includes a piano!!! grin

Hello Ines,

That's great! As we get closer to the event, I am sure that the hosts will send out specific directions to their homes. 3 are in the same block/back yards!

Goodies are always welcome at PW parties and part of the fun. I remember eating all day at the Cape Cod party. One home for hor d'heuvres, one for even more, one for main courses plus, and Sun morn for breakfast! Some guests bring light things, some go all out.

Then there's the liquid refreshments too. Lighter and wines/beers.

No one needs to play, but we do. Even we scaredy cats! We love to share music and that's what it is all about. No pressure, no recitals. Jazz, classical, pop (Frank is the king of pop!). Some beginners, some more advanced. Some kids too! Some mistakes and some wowsers. Sometimes we even have to kick a player off the piano so we get to try all of them!!! ha ha ha

So come and join the fun. It is a very friendly group! There are pics up for past get togethers. CC 2007 2006 2005 I think as well as several other PW parties in the 'party forum'.

Will be there on Saturday with Elaine and looking forward to meeting you all. I will not be able to stay for Sunday because I have to be back In Connecticut. Just found out cruise prices will be going up by about 10 - 20 percent on the 25th so call me if interested at 860-887-6481. I think this can become an annual event.

We are just a month away from the By the Sea Piano Party.

All of our wonderful hosts, Roberta and Ed, Marilyn and Keith, Helga and John, and Kathy and Tom very graciously open up all their lovely homes and pianos to us.

It looks like a large group is coming this year and the hosts can use our support with food or drink donations of all kinds. Food is served throughout the day on Saturday as well as Sunday morning. It seems as if piano playing and listening whets the appetite.

See you all next month.

Hi Terry,
I'm sure your count is low since you didn't mention the hosts (8+), or Jerry & Linda, Ed Papier (NY), Larry Buck, or Jim Cullen and I'm sure there are more.

It's great to learn that Kathy and Tom Howes will once again be able to host the Sunday portion of our Cape Cod weekend. I encourage them to break free of their own preparations and join the Saturday fun on Freeman Lane.

I will post directions to the party in a week or two.

Driving directions

This year the driving directions are somewhat complicated by work on the Sagamore Bridge. This job may have been shovel ready but it has not been traveler friendly. The Army Corps of Engineers is replacing the bridge deck and that work usually has 2 lanes of the Sagamore Bridge shut down and has greatly affected traffic patterns. The problem is worst going off Cape during commuting hours, but delays of an hour or more are common. Hopefully you will be traveling during off peak hours and the officials will make some provisions for Columbus weekend traffic.

From the south or west I 95 (CT turnpike) to Providence, I 195 to I 495 which becomes Rt 25, cross the canal on the Bourne Bridge, go around the Bourne rotary to the last exit before the bridge then follow the signs to Rt 6 (the mid cape highway).

Get off Rt 6 at X 12, turn right at the end of the ramp, to the first traffic light (less than one block), [the Skaket Beach Motel is on your right], turn right at the light onto Eldridge Parkway, after two more traffic lights Eldridge Parkway becomes Tonset Rd. Follow Tonset for 2 miles to Freeman Lane, bear left on Freeman for about 1/4 mi, we are the first house on the right (51 Freeman Lane) after the Snow Point turn around. The party begins around noon on Saturday at the Harrisons at the end of Uncle Jim's lane (#15) which is the first right turn after our house.

If you are coming from the west get onto I 495 and follow the directions above from I 495.

If you are coming from the north then Rt 3 south normally is the best bet. But you may want to consider avoiding Rt 3 South by taking Rt 128 to Rt 24 South to I 495 and crossing the canal on the Bourne Bridge. Or take a chance on the bridge and follow RT 3 to the new flyover and the one open lane across the Sagamore Bridge onto Rt 6. Then get off at exit 12 as above.

One source of traffic reports is SmarTraveler Boston. Please make an allowance for traffic delays.

Traffic Update - Good News

"The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers has announced it will adjust the work schedule on the Sagamore Bridge for the next three weekends to relieve traffic backups that have plagued motorists coming and going from Cape Cod."

"For the Columbus Day holiday weekend, a second lane will be open coming onto the Cape from 2 p.m. Oct. 9 through 5 a.m. Oct. 11. A second lane of traffic on the bridge will be open leaving the Cape from 11 a.m. Oct. 11 through 10 a.m. Oct. 13."


This should be good news especially for those coming from the north including Boston, Lowell and Maine. Rt 3 and the Sagamore Bridge is likely to be the best way to get to Rt 6. Good traveling, drive safely.

Thanks for the directions and Elaine and I look foward to meeting all of you. I will be at a travel show in Atlantic City from 6-9 but will probably get some rest before heading out Saturday morning. Have to be back in CT on Sunday so unfortunately will miss the great brunch. Maybe next year. By the way there is still space on the cruise in March. Wny not join us.

Our long awaited Cape Cod piano gathering is fast approaching!!! laugh yippie

I thought it might be a good plan to set up a few name tags for PW members. If anyone would care to have a nifty little laminated PW name tag, let me know by PM.

Ok, let's talk food once again.

My thoughts would be to have Ed make some suggestions for what the host families would like to request. After the request has been provided, others can sign up for a particular item.

Or if there is a specific goodie you'd like to bring along, perhaps guests could make mention of what they would like to contribute.

I would like to contribute a Fumi Salad for Saturday and a couple of cran/banana breads for Sunday.

On another note... I have rented a house in Wellfleet and would like to extend an invitation to everyone a chance to gather Friday evening. I guess we could refer to it as a "play-off" to the weekend since hopefully a small vintage Henry Miller grand will be at our location in Wellfleet.

Our housemates include the very talented Lilylady; the one and only Mr PianoWorld and his lovely friend, Kathy!!!


If you are interested in an early start to the weekend and would like to head on over for a pre-piano gathering, I'll provide an address and my cellphone number through a PM.

Safe travels to everyone!

Ginny O'Holleran and husband.
Gayle and Carl Regway

Ginny said she would bring baked ziti. Mmmn I'm starting to get hungry.

The countdown begins; 7 days left.

We should be in Wellfleet some time Friday afternoon (depending on my ability to find my way).

Happy to pick something up to bring once we're down there.

Suggestions?

Also, Kathy had an idea that might help handle the usual confusion about who will play the piano when.

Numbers (1 - ?) in a hat. Draw a number when you come in, that's the order in which you will get a turn at the piano. A time (or piece) limit per player might be a good idea too.

Not trying to put a damper on things (pun intended), but it looks like a big turnout for the parties this year and some controls might be helpful.

Frank & Kathy

Lets not get too complicated Frank, vying for the piano is part of the fun. The Saturday hosts had an informal (over homemade pizza) planning meeting this evening and did not want any rules on who gets to play.

We (the hosts) are in party mode and we hope that everybody is ready for the best Cape Cod Piano Party ever. By the way, the food that is being planned is super. Yum

I've always liked the "play when you want" system. If I were to walk in and draw #1 out of a hat, I wouldn't play. Some people need some time to relax before playing.

It can be intimidating for some of us to play in front of the rest of you. We sound great when playing the piano alone at home, but sit down with 40 people staring at you...and forget it! And telling us, "Oh, just don't think about it."...well, you just don't understand!

I consider myself an accompanist, not a solo performer. So, if anyone would like to sing or play an instrument along with the piano...bring your music and I'll hack through it!

Plus, who goes to these parties to play the piano? It's all about the food! smile

AND

Party we shall!
I am sure that once we kick Frank off the pianos, there will be plenty of time for the rest of us! (just teasing FB!)

"WE" all know what you mean about the nerves and playing. I'll make sure you and Terry have a glass of wine first, Eric!

Planning on bringing the 'famous' home grown/made salsa, some stuffed mildly/hot home grown peppers with proscuitto and feta cheese in olive oil for hors d'heuvres and oatmeal raison cookies and maybe an herbal pasta dish as well. Hey - the garden is bountiful right now.

Anyone want daylilies this year?

I'm excited by the buzz of activity. I'm telling my son he will be playing on on different fine pianos. I'm hoping to make that an exciting adventure. Which one will he like the best? That is my approach anyway to heighten his interest... we will see if it entices him. It turns out we are staying in North Truro along the beach so we will be doing some traveling down the cape for the Sat gathering. We are staying through Monday and are bringing the bikes on the back of the car. It might be a little rainy until Sat afternoon, but then looks good for the rest of the weekend.

Are you ready?

I have a count of 46 including the hosts. I know of 5 others who may be coming, at least to part of the weekend.

WOW What a great party this will be and we have so many newcomers.
Can't wait to see everyone. Remember your nametags if you have them.
I found mine yesterday and was so excited.

The locals will tell you that the trip from Truro to Orleans is Up Cape. It all has to do with winds and Down East. If you are interested in local nonsense ask me about this at the party and I will try to explain.

I hope your son has fun on the four piano's.

Hi Ed. Tell Roberta that I'll be bringing a cheese cake platter again. I was so sad to hear that Ed Papier won't be making it. We had several piano 4-hand pieces up our sleeves. Anyway, I'm really looking forward to it and see you all again.

PS: The Nausett Inn was full, so I'm staying at the Parsonage Inn in E. Orleans and by sheer coincidence, they have a grand piano. Is that karma or what?

The party has already begun. You missed the pre-party earlier tonight in Wellfleet with Terry, Frank, LillyLady, Larry, Sue and misc. other people.

Next session at the Harrisons at Noon Saturday.

Ed's right, we had the pleasure of a pre-party party at the house Terry & LillyLady rented in Wellfleet, which just happened to come with a piano:-)

LillyLady sounded great in the afternoon, then when Kathy & I went back in the evening we had great fun listening to Sue play some amazing ragtime and stride piano!

Here's a short clip of Sue tickling the ivories...



Now we just have to hear TerryTunes and Roberta play.

And that was just the start of the festivities.
See you all at the Harrison's Saturday.

Wow, what a great party weekend its been. Sue and I have never had so much fun. A pre-party Fri nite where they had a vintage Henry Miller baby grand made in Boston. Then three venues yesterday, each with their own fine M&H. Off any minute to today's brunch at the 4th location. Been doing a little recording and picture taking so there will be more to follow...

Back from another magical Cape Cod Piano Party. Wow, wow, wow! It was another amazing orgy of piano music, piano friends, food, and Cape Cod in its autumn glory - talk about sensory overload. I didn't do a whole lot of picture taking this time, but others were there whom I know will fill you in. But, here's a little prequel.



Here's the classic PW group piano shot. This is really only a partial photo of the comers as people were coming and going throughout the 24 hour period. This was taken at John and Helga's with their magnificent, smooth and shimmery, restored 6 ft something MH. Their house is the best for these group pics b/c of the expansive room the piano is in.



This is what happens when you try to take a picture (or listen to) Terrytunes when she's playing. But, make no mistake, she is hiding (or trying to hide) her talents under the proverbial bushel basket. What's up with that, Terry!



So, I've skipped a whole day of partying. Except for the first photo, I just totally relied on others to document the events of Saturday. I was just too busy enjoying myself. So, here we're at Kathy and Tom's house for Sunday brunch with mimosas, bloody Mary's, oh yeah, and coffee, and an amazing spread of food. It was just the perfect scene for the afterglow of the previous day.



This is rather blurry, but it's just a neat shot of Terry with her PW T-shirt chatting up Mr. PWorld himself.



Here are two of our wonderful Saturday hostesses, Roberta and Marilyn.



This is our new PianoWorld star extraordinaire - Sue. She is married to PW member, hv, and is a professional pianist of the ragtime and blues variety. I'm sure many of you have seen videos that Howard has linked to here at PianoWorld. Let me tell you, you've got to see her in person. This woman knows how to entertain.



And Lilylady mesmerizing with her Schumann, Rach and Scriabin.

Anyway, as I said, this is a very incomplete snap of the days' events, but will give you a little taste of what's yet to come. Thank you to all of our wonderful hosts and hostesses for a truly special and memorable event.

Elaine and I want to thank you all for the great friendship and wonderful music. We have told people all day yesterday about your group, your hospitality and your great piano music. If you missed it don't miss the next one. If you think this was fun why not join us on our "Piano Cruise" on March 14th (see separate thread for details). There is still space and we will have a piano to ourselves in the beautiful observation lounge on the 14th deck on both sea days. We are pleased to be associated with you.

Jerry and I haven't come down to earth yet.

10 hours of excellent piano on Sat. followed by 5 hours on Sun. is almost too much to imagine. It was an astounding musical weekend.

We were entertained on Saturday by our webmaster Frank, Lily Lady, Kathy K., Jeremy, Eric Gloo, Eric from Albany and their son Peter, Karen Kelly, Sue Keller, Beckett Senchur, all our hostesses (Roberta, Helga and Marilyn) Terry Neff, and Lily K.

On Sunday at the brunch at Tom and Kathy Howes, many of the above played and also Mimi Ace, plus we had a surprise guest, Jacqueline Schwab, the pianist for the Ken Burns PBS documentaries.

We had it all, from superb classical to jazz to standards, unbelievable ragtime and singing by Sue Keller, and English folk tunes, Appalachian hymns and so much more by the very talented Jacqueline Schwab.

The pianos were given the workout of their lives.

Our hosts and hostesses outdid themselves with oh such delicious cuisine!! And the guests brought very unusual and tasty and beautiful platters of food. I wanted recipes for everything.

I guess I am gushing but it was a gushable occasion.

Thanks to all for bringing this about. It is no easy undertaking.

Linda

ps.If I left out anyone else who played, I apologize.

More Wow Wow Wowers and Gushings!

What a weekend! Wonderful homes and displays of great Mason Hamlins on Sat - Older AA, BB and new A. Beautiful new August Forster on Sunday and even an old Henry Miller at our rental home for the Pre-party gathering! The best hosts and hostesses you could possibly meet. Old piano friends and new. Great pianists. Unbelievable food.

Party started with the ride down with Terrytunes and Mr. TT.
A few stops on the way to get us in the Cape Cod mood.



Our rental home was an artist in residence funky place.

The PIANO MAN greeted us (take a look at those long piano fingers!)



Our own PW Piano Man was soon found at the keyboard with a hopeful tip glass on the piano.



Soon followed by PW member hv's wife Sue. Sue turned out to be quite the entertainer all weekend with her 1001 stories and ragtime 'plus' playing.



While friends enjoyed the festive atmosphere


(Roberta, Ed, PW Frank and Kathy)


(Terrytunes and Steve)

The Saturday Festivities involved neighborhood friends who all own some beautiful MH pianos.

We started with hors d'heuvres and hot asperagus soup at Marilyn and Keith's and enjoyed playing/listening to a beautiful old AA. Since I own a newer AA, it was especially fun to play theirs. MH has been doing it 'right' for a LONG TIME!


(the beautiful Marilyn)



Host Keith on the right talking with PW travel agent Bill and his wife Elaine.


(included here are TT, Jerry and Linda Gloo, son Eric)

Players PW member Tj and his son. Tj shared one of his own compositions.





Soon to be PW member Karen



PW KathyK who always has some interesting advanced pieces to share with us



And PW Frank sharing a composition he wrote, 'FOR KATHY', along with the story of how they met as pre teens and re-met recently to fall in love this time! Gorgeous FB!


(FB playing)

We then walked through the grove of trees to Helga and John's home and into their world of the MH BB. Work was done on their piano since I was last there 3 yrs ago and magnificence is what I heard!

Edison would have been a joyful welcome to this party.



Here is the TT pic that KK missed!



Host John enjoyed recording his piano. Next time John, we had better HEAR you playing as well!


(Some Helga pics later)

Ragtime Sue showed us her versitility with a 24 minute medley of the Beatles tunes. WOW! Sue, WOW! WOW! WOW! This brought the house down!



And a little lighter version of some of the attendees.



Some PW members stopped by for just a quick hello and tickle of the ivories. Please remind us of her name. She played some beautiful Spanish music and brought along her niece who if I am correct is a clarinetist whom we must get to play next time!



And for those of us who lingered a bit, we got to hear PW Kathy play!

The PP started at noon. By twilight we walked over to Roberta and Ed's home and the main feast. Oh, and there was that gorgeous MH A to play and yes, more players doing their tickling!



I was so pleased this time to hear Eric Gloo played. I had missed hearing him 3 years ago and was very impressed with his playing - several times this weekend. Smooth, like his father Jerry. And Beautiful Music which I had not heard before as well.



The highlight for me(as well as other wonderful playing) was when 'the hostess ladies' teacher showed up and we talk them into playing!

Here is Beckett with 'his students'



(Helga, Marilyn, Becket, Linda, Roberta)

Roberta was the first brave one! ("Wait a minute, just wait!!!" she would say, as she searched for that hard chord to wrap her fingers around)

You are doing just great Roberta!



Linda Gloo had her excuses this year - a shoulder operation, but...we have heard her doing very well one year ago at KathyK's party in Maine one year ago!

Marilyn and Becket duet



And Helga with Beckett, 3 hands on one piano!!!



Beckett, it was obvious that you are a treasure and well loved! I hope you join us here in the TEACHER'S FORUM on PW.

Beckett by the way is a great classical, improve teacher and church organist.

Not only did PW hv do some recordings which he promised to share with us, he is also a photographer. Here, under Roberta's piano



The food was unbelievable... I'll just sharing one pic to also show the gorgeous pottery serving pieces used.



Cont - due to pic limitations

The Dinner Bell Rang



The Jug Bell Rang



(that is Cape Cod Beer)

The Ragtime Lady listened



Other's chatted between listening



Frank added touches to Jerry's playing



Then gave up!



And by 10PM we all collapsed and had to say goodnight...

Yet, couldn't wait for the Sunday Party to Begin!

Sunday Morning Brunch at 10 at the Howes and their new gorgeous August Forster. It sits in the foyer as one enters their home.





(this was the only time it was minus a player!)

Hostess Kathy enjoying hearing her piano (and I am sorry that I did not get a pic of husband host Tom as the pic I had of him making scrambled eggs came out blurry)



Brunch was over the top wonderful. This is just an example of offerings - sauteed apples (double sauteed in brandy?)



And players we indeed had! As well as those that shared their talents on Sat (and Fri nite) we had "New Ones"!


(please help me out with her name - she played beautifully!)

KK shared a few more



Sue shared a few more



And one of my favorite pics of Sue letting her hair down, telling us about how she won several 'Jeopardy' contests!



Jerry shared a few more



And then....

another 'piece de resistance' and delightful lady came - Jacqueline Schwab of Ken Burn's PBS specials.... and her famous improv on the Civil War documentary was played...and this after a few other countra dance/country dance pieces were shared. What a talent! I hope she joins PW!



All in all...

THIS WAS A 'WOW' WEEKEND!

Bobbie, you can sure put together photos and words that put us right back at the parties. Not to speak of your wonderful piano playing that thrilled and moved us all.

I did forget a Sat player originally from Argentina. Her name is Enis Raquel. Would have loved to have h eard more from her. Maybr her neice Becky will bring her clarinet next time.

Mimi Ace from Eastham was the Sun. player whose name you didn't know. She was the one who alerted Jacqueline Schwab about Piano World.

Oh, I am sorry I missed it...nice to see many familiar faces...

And novelinda!!! What is with the sling!!! One reason I didn't come is that I have a matching one! (torn rotator cuff surgery 3 weeks ago) What is your story!? I hope you are on the mend! Love to you and the big guy!

We just got back to FL from the long Cape weekend.

Didn't want to come back.

Incredible time from when we arrived to when we left.
Tired from traveling, will post pictures and stuff some time tomorrow.

I don't know how they do it, but somehow the Cape parties get better each year.

A special thanks to all our hosts and hostesses, a shout out to our two new celebrity members, and my apologies to Terry and Steve for forgetting to mention their anniversary while I was making announcements.

P.S.
Sorry you missed it BeeLady, it was a wonderful weekend. Hope you're feeling better. Novelinda had her shoulder replaced, she's now bionic.

Bee Lady, we all missed you. I had my total shoulder replacement 4 weeks ago tomorrow in Boston. No pain. Venus is the name I gave my prothesis. I miss playing the piano but hope to get back to it in Nov. Hope you are doing well.

Frank and Kathy, glad you are home safely and we understand the exhaustion. I think part of it was the emotionalism of the incredible piano we heard for 15 hours and of course you had Fri. night as well.

Love the pics and reports!

Looking forward to some of the video/audio tapes. I tried to do some on my little digital as I saw others doing it, but alas, it only took video with no audio present. Well, darn, what good was that at a piano party, huh? ;-)

***I would like to email Marilyn as she asked me to send some info to her about imslp and other downloading music sites.

Would someone please send me her email or ask her to PM me through PW Private Mail Contact so that we can communicate?

Thanks!

Now Forster Kath, some of those 'to do' things on the list look rather mysterious...

Cats on bath?

Put away bath tub?

Plu cat fouls?

Wash dennis?

Bake 'who'?

A SPECIAL THANKS to Larry Buck for the excellent work done on Roberta Langs Mason&Hamlin and Kathy and Tom Howes August Forster. Thanks also to Jon Page for the fine work done on the Williams Mason&Hamlin. Larry and Jon donated their time....."Aint" we lucky??!!

What can I say about Frank Baxter WM and Terry Neff the chief organizer. Without them we would not be meeting these wonderful folks and listening in awe to fantastic music. Thanks so much for starting this all!!!!!!

What a treat this year to have two special musicians. Sue Keller....you blew us away with your performances...Scott Joplin would be proud!!
Jacqueline Schwab....just beautiful....hard to keep the tears away during your emotional performance of Ashokan Farewell!! Very special to have both of you and yours living on the Cape.

To every one who played.....it just gets better and better.

Thanks to all for a very special and joyous happening!!!

I have added more photos in a new post in the Photo Gallery Forum. I could not add them to this thread, as it has taken me a week to "almost" view all the other photos. You just have to love dial-up internet connections!

Greeting from Ines Raquel who stopped for a short visit to play Granados and Piazzolla. I wish I could have stayed longer to hear the rest of you play. The Scriabin piece that LilyLady played was exquisite. Thank you all for your wonderful hospitality. I hope we'll have other opportunities to get together. Next time, I will ask my niece Becky to bring her clarinet. She's a superb player. Great photos! Thanks for posting them.

Hi, Everyone! My wife Sue and I had a great time at the Cape Cod Piano-World party. Thanks to all the wonderful people and new friends we made there. Now we know what makes this forum such a great place to be.

An added thrill for me was the chance to hear and record some fantastic pianos. Although I have a very good friend who owns a late model M&H BB, I've never recorded one before. This past weekend I got to record 3 of them. And an August Förster which was more icing on the cake. Anyway, here are the recordings I got. My apologies in advance for less than optimized recordings. But hey, this was a party.

I did my best to identify who was playing... SueKeller is my wife. MrPW is Frank. Tkaczyk. KathyK, InesRaquel, EricGloo, LilyLady, and A441 are members here. The rest I've identified by name.

Not sure what all the pieces are. I've indicated the ones I think I recognise, but I probably made some mistakes. Please correct and fill in the blanks. The last recording is what my piano mics picked up while everyone was quizzing Jacqueline Schwab.

Oh Howard what a gift you have given us!! We can't believe that after all these years of piano parties, we can now listen forever to our old friends and new ones as well.

On a personal level these are the first recordings we have ever had of Jeremy (A441) and Eric playing.

The quality is very good even on our little computer speakers.

Thank you sincerely,

Linda and Jerry

I'll second that thank you.

As I mentioned to Howard in a PM, we often have lots of pictures, but rarely have any recordings, and then it's usually just short clips.

It's wonderful to have pictures & sound now!

Thanks, thanks, thanks Howard. I have just downloaded all the recordings - wow.

Now maybe the players will be kind enough to fill in the blanks and put titles to the music. I think all of us can figure out some of the pieces, but the range is so great that I doubt if any of us know them all. I am pretty sure that some of the offerings were composed by the player and only he (or she) has a name for those pieces.

Thank you Howard.
Wow is right. What a treat to listen to your recordings; tremendous quality even on my computer speakers. I am sure it was a lot of work, but it is greatly appreciated.

(Lilylady, I laughed out loud at your post on the mysterious To Do list; notice that most last minute tasks had to do with PETS.)

What a great event and now, thanks to Howard, one that can be enjoyed by many.

Re-listening to all this material in preparation for the uploads was a real treat for me. And the photo spreads put me right back there.

Here's some greater detail on what Sue played:

T342 Maple Leaf Rag by Scott Joplin (1899)
T353-1 Last of the Ragtime Pioneers by Galen Wilkes (1984)
T353-2 Lion Tamer Rag by Mark Janza (1913)
T353-3 Beatles Medley ... here's the ABF thread version Sue mentioned
T-366-4 Sue's ad lib alternate classical-styled ending to a Blues vocal piece... I'm so sorry I didn't bring an extra mic to catch the vocals
T369-1 sightreading Ashokan Fairwell by Jay Ungar (1982)
T369-2 sightreading something... ???
T370-1 sightreading Tears in Heaven by Eric Clapton ( 1991 )
T371 Snowy Morning Blues by James P Johnson (1927)
T379-1 Cum Bac by Charles L Johnson (1911)
T379-2 Solace by Scott Joplin (1909)

I re-played T369-2 for Sue and she doesn't know the piece or recall it's name. Just playing a sheet she found lying on the piano while chatting with Eric. Maybe one of Jacqueline's? We'll need a little help with that one.

Please accept my thanks to hosts of the party who opened their homes to us and to all those others that made this possible. It was wonderful venue and I thoroughly enjoyed the company and music. It was especially impressive that Frank was able to order up some delightful weather for the weekend following a rainy start. It was fun to be thrown suddenly into that crowd and find such a variety of people all brought together by the piano and the music. I sensed some real love, friendship and perhaps (?) some good-natured rivalry between the parties. Not too many fights over who got to the piano first. I appreciate the opportunity to play on these wonderful pianos and to such a gracious audience. What terrific support and encouragement that all showed to me, my son and the other players. I’m encouraged to seek other opportunities to play before people and work through the nervousness. The pictures and recordings are a wonderful reminder. It was a truly memorable experience.

Here are the pieces that I played.
T344-1 Brahms, Waltz in Ab Major, Op. 39, no. 15
T344-2 Tkaczyk,Ringtail Adventure(my own first composition, 2009)
T351 Rachmaninoff, Prelude in C# minor, Op. 3

T369-2 I had left my Dan Coates book at the piano. Sue was playing May You Always... from my book of tunes!

thanks again Howard for taking the time to record and post all the music that was played. It's been an excellent after party treat, for sure!!

Hi !!!!!!!!!!!
HAPPY THANKSGIVING!!!!

I did not mail "the book". Are you still planning to be in Orleans this week.

Roberta Lang said that she had invited you both and Sues father for Thanksgiving dinner...but had not heard from you when I was at there home awhile back.

Let me know what your Orleans addy is (and phone?) and I'll drop the book off......or stop by. We are at 120 Campground Rd in North Eastham....phone 508-255-6366.

Have a safe trip.....hope to see you.

Jeremy and Linda Gloo
