My roommate is a concert pianist. Jealous much? Well, you should be. She's AMAZING. Not only does she keep me entertained with show tunes, sing-a-longs, and the best of Billy Joel, but she also plays classical music with the best of them. What she does with Chopin is unreal. I really love having her around too... because her practice time is my "Cynthia-is-getting-her-very-own-private-concert-time." I love it. It isn't very often that we actually get to see, hear, and know brilliance or beauty, but what my roomie does with Mozart is sheer brilliance. And I am so lucky to have her in my life... now, if I could just convince her to move to Oklahoma with me.
Anyways, Miss J performed a concert yesterday, and for about 75 lucky people, she strutted her stuff. She is, without a doubt, one of the most amazing pianists I've ever had the pleasure of hearing. I wish y'all could have been there to hear it. But you weren't... So, you get the pleasure of SEEING some of her concert. Not the same, I know, but you're just going to have to deal with it. And before you get yourself in a dander, I had permission to take pictures during the concert. I was the "professional photographer" for the event. (Of course, I use the term "professional" VERY loosely.) I must admit, it was the first time in my life that I was encouraged to take pictures during a performance... and it was awkward. Two reasons: 1) I FELT the stares of people wishing me ill for taking pictures, and 2) I don't think I ever realized how loud a camera could be. The music would be going, and then all of a sudden... CLICK! Granted, I had permission, but it was really odd. Anyways, I'm posting a few of the pics on here... enjoy!
