A few more details/follow up:

My husband played a Chopin prelude (op. 28. No. 4), my teacher played Mendellsohn's "Fleecy Clouds" from Songs Without Words; Bach's Italian Concerto, second movement; and, Schumann's "Carnaval," 1st thingie (her words, not mine!). I played Gershwin's "Blue Lullaby" (as Joy reported above) and "The Old Castle" by Moussorgsky. My son played "Drift Away," the version by Uncle Cracker which is found often on Top 40 stations theses days. Next up for him, "You're a Mean One Mr. Grinch."

The lyrics to "Oh Jingle" (which I refused to sing as I played and heretowith are copyright protected, all rights reserved ;\) ) are:

Oh jingle, oh jingle
It's Christmas holiday
Oh jingle, oh jingle
I'll wiggle your waggles away
Oh jingle, oh jingle
It's Christmas holiday
Oh jingle, oh jingle
Have a happy Christmas hol-i-day!

Some postscript musical notes:

The Scarlatti piece Trish played is the Sonata in B minor, K87 (L.33). [Thanks for forwarding the info, Barbara!]

Among the several pieces Barbara played was the Scriabin Etude in D# minor, Op. 8, No 12, a gorgeous piece. My son is particularly fond of this one. Barbara played this one to perfection a year ago at her own Piano Party.

Oh, and a special thanks to Brian (Briguy 65) for thoughtfully providing the name tags for the party.

Oooooo . . . I hate to miss parties that look like this much fun! Happy people, gorgeous piano, what more could one ask? Once I get this computer up and running, I'm going to start saving for a plane ticket for the 2005 Piano Party . . . hope there will be one! \:D

A note to John de Lurker: I was just looking at the photos again. If you had a fedora on, tilted at just the right angle, you'd look like Humphrey Bogart in "Casablanca." Or like Jerry Lacy impersonating Humphrey Bogart in "Play It Again Sam." Now wouldn't that be a kick to see in 2005's Piano Party photos. Just a thought. Besides, you play a lot better than Sam did in the movie. What a tinny piano he had!
;\)

And one more item to share: Rick mentioned to me that the Schulze-Pollman representatives at NAMM knew all about our Piano Party -- this was before it actually happened -- and they in turn told him they were very excited and pleased that the festivities would be centered around one of their pianos. It's further proof that this Forum is indeed followed by many professionals in the industry.
