I don't know, Frank. We've had forcasts of "little or no accumulation", and ended up with 17" of snow!

Besides, I'm glad it's been postponed because I couldn't have made it anyway because my car is lousy in the white stuff. On a scale of 1 to 10 it's something like -5 in traction!

Take care,

John

Is is about the same this morning, but after about midnight is when the heavy stuff falls, still 10-14 inch prediction.

Indrek is playing both Sat and Sun in two different venues.

I wouldn't want to have to move that big beautiful Estonia in that weather!


See you all next week!

Chris, Axt is my plus one!

I do hope others are able to move things around to come! Liz was working on it and I am trying to convince Bernard to come up on the train. \:\)

Oh, Terry....Just Do It! \:D

We might get a chance to meet. \:\) They're calling for clear and cold so far for Saturday.

This is New England and forecasts change by the whim of Mother Nature.

Yes, it is. Sorry not to confirm a time. We kept it the same as last week because the concert is staying on its 8PM schedule.

See you,

Another wonderful evening with wonderful people. Thanks to Chris and Helen for being such gracious hosts. Helen out did herself with the table spread! We have a new high standard to live up to! It was all so delicious.

Larry's photos are great, I can add just a few blurrier ones.. :p

We were thrilled to have Indrek join us at the party and give us a preconcert overview of the Beethoven he was to play later. Taking in his every word and note...John Citron, Helen's Mom, LeeBea, Helen, John Totaro, John's companion Nina.


The group...


palley, John Citron, ChrisW1's wife Helen, ChrisW1, Indrek Laul, Frank Baxter, BeeLady, JeanneW and LloydW. Down in front, Axtremus and Leebea. Larry Buck was so busy taking a photo, he forgot to get into one!

Indrek performing on the big beauty..


At intermission, the audience was invited to come up and view the piano before the movers took it away to the next venue. I think EVERYONE came up to take a look!

Thanks so much for sharing the pics!

Chris, your place looks tres elegante! Love that piano shawl!

WOW! how wonderful to be able to say that Indrek came and played your piano!

Would love to hear more about the concert and the concert Estonia thoughts.

Yes, it was a great evening!

Chris has a beautiful home, a beautiful family, and a beautiful piano... geesh, some people have it all :-)

Seriously, many thanks to Chris and his family for hosting the pre-concert gathering. The food was wonderful and everyone enjoyed themselves completely. And thanks to John Totaro of Boston Piano and Organ for organizing the event (John, we will take you up on your offer to borrow your hall sometime soon).

Indrek's "lessons" before the concert were a treat, and the concert itself was a joy.

As beautiful as the new Estonia was from the outside, we were all waiting in anticipation to see the inside, and we weren't dissappointed.

Indrek's interpretation of Beethoven's Piano Concerto No. 5 was fantastic. It's hard to tell who enjoyed themselves more, the orchestra, Indrek, or the audience (I think it was a 3 way tie).

Speaking of the orchestra, they are The New Philharmonia Orchestra ( www.newphil.org )under the direction of Ronald Knudsen. Their music includes classics, family, pops, and chamber.

These are people who play music because they love it, and you can see it on their faces. Check them out if you have a chance.

Thanks again to everyone involved. It's always fun to get together with our forums members.
I never met a forums gathering I didn't like :-)

Now, a few more pictures...

Frank, You can have any of the pics I have taken. The pics I am displaying on PW are "web friendly" versions. I am happy to amail you any of the "full" resolution photo's you would like......for posterity.

It was great to see everyone again and chat. Events like this remind me of why I am here. Very nice.

Thanks to everyone who came. We had a wonderful time opening up our home to such gracious guests. We got a chance to hear and meet Indrek Laul, and we also met our new neighbor, John Totaro. Sorry, to those stranded by the door bell.

I hope we appropriately saluted our special guest. Indrek really brought in the kind of soiree atmosphere that I believe everyone found both captivating and intimate. And, wow, it happened in our home, and on our very own piano!

Thanks to all who provided food and drink, my wife included. I was out of town until the AM on Saturday and she pulled out the stops. Your thoughtfulness led to quite a spread and, um, lunch for the rest of February ;\)

The pictures look great. I got to show them to my folks before they left.

Wow! what a trip! We just got home to Binghamton (really Vestal!) after an exciting weekend.

Many thanks to Chris and Helen for being such gracious hosts. And to BeeLady for her efforts at organizing the affair.

And, of course, to Frank for providing such a place for us to hang out.

This concert was great and it was a thrill to meet Indrek. He was kind enough to autograph our copy of his CD.

Today I had the great pleasure to meet my good PW friend Paul Y at his place of business. Was nice to try a variety of pianos such as we don't find here in the boondocks. (And to conclude that my Clavinova is still very suited to my needs.)

Thanks to ChrisW1 and family. Chris W1 and family threw a great party! (I hope you're happy now -- 'coz it looks like you'll making all future piano parties look bad. ;\) \:D )

Thanks to Dr. Laul for giving the PW crowd a pre-concert lecture at Chris W1's, and to John Totaro of Boston Organ and Piano for sponsoring the excuse for us to have a party.

Special thanks to BeeLady, not only for organizing the event, but also for giving me a ride to the party and concert -- much appreciated! \:\)

For all of you who could not make it to the event, well, I am sorry you couldn't make it. Please scroll up, look at the pictures again, and make it your President's Day resolution to not miss the next party. ;\)

Gosh how nice! the photos are great!

I kind of like the new Estonia name on the fall board. I wonder if that will adorn all new and future Estonias.

(i want Indrek to come to my house - waaah! - maybe when and if a dealer can ever pick up an option to sell them here)
