Tell you what--if you get there early enough, I give you permission to play the piano. Cathy promised to have it tuned and regulated for me, so if it doesn't sound or feel right to you, please rectify any problems. I trust you.

Call me a diva, but I just can't tolerate playing an imperfectly-maintained piano.

Catlady, what time does the event begin?

I'm taking the Chinatown bus this time ($35 round trip!!) and want to plan correctly.

(Successfully made my reservation at the Sheraton already.)

She told me 6:00 P.M.

Perhaps she'll verify this.

Well, actually what I said was something like "the store closes at 6, so it will be after that". Last time we started around 6:30. I need a little time to finish with customers (hopefully) and start setting out the food and drinks. We'll probably eat dinner around 7-ish.

BTW, anyone who still needs a reservation at the Sheraton should call 703-836-4700 and ask for Daniel Cheng. He is handling our "special rate" rooms personally. (just tell him Harl Pianos)

I stand justly whipped and flogged. ;\)

Where, by the way, is the Sheraton?

Did you say St. ASAPH?

Are you sure PianoSuperstore doesn't have an outlet there? Am I going to see one of those "German" Ellenburgs in the lobby?

One of the outlets for Ellenburg on the web was Asaph Music \:D \:D :p

Hey Cathy,

Anybody interested in hearing a piano-French Horn piece at the party? :p

We ain't perfect yet, but Anthony and I are working up part of Saint Saens' "Concert Piece" in a Horn/Piano duo.

I'll reply to that, Sir. I am interested in any instrument that anyone can play at this party. Even if someone brings their guitar - that would be cool, too. I am soooooo ultra looking forward to playing on some of that sweet pianos (but I'm not soooo great.... still new). but, what a treat it will be. And my husband, well, he'll have fun, too!

So, Anthony, yup, please have your son play, definitely!

Peace, \:D
Sharon

Piano*Dad, I'd like to hear your piano/French horn ditty. Cathy has the final say, but I'm game.

Now I have less than a week to learn all my jazz chord progressions, open voicings, and figure out what a "shell" is before Spin Doctor yells at me.

But really, glad to hear you're coming!

Hey, don't worry...I don't know them either ;\) I keep starting on that stuff, but once I get on a roll, something comes up and then I forget it all again.
