The Ninth Day was blessed with Terence Blanchard to pay us a visit and my performance at the new season announcement press conference for Kennedy Center 2016/2017. What a day!
Since my ensemble where about to have our first performance at the announcement of the Kennedy Center’s new season program for 2016/2017, it was a special treat to start the morning in this way. I am so grateful for all the opportunities and possibilities that have been opened.
Warming up and last preparations for the press conference performance. An audience of 500 is expected including Terence Blanchard and many other important guests. 🙂
We performed Cedar’s grove by Vincent Dupont, Everlasting love by Liselotte Östblom and Frame of Reference by Jordan Williams. Later on we performed for each other the first performance set and got feedback from no other than Terence Blanchard who changed his flight to stay in with us. That was an honor!
