We got our tickets for this recital today at MBE Boquete. A few tickets are still available.

Hope to see you there, as this should be a good cultural event. Besides that, it is supporting a good cause.

We attended what turned out to be a packed house cello concert last night at Biblioteca de Boquete. An OUTSTANDING performance!

Each musical piece was introduced with a bit of background information, more than just the name of the song and the composer's name. These announcements were done not only by the conductor, but also by several of the musicians themselves. All announcements were in both Spanish and English. The musical pieces selected included classical, Broadway type numbers, easy listening, one by a Panamanian composer, and even one with audience participation (New York, New York).

The library staff deserves special recognition for bringing these cultural resources to Boquete. And Anayansi Menendez of Hotel Oasis should be recognized also because we understand Hotel Oasis is assisting with lodging for these visiting musicians.

There was a standing ovation at the end of the scheduled program, and then the Ensamble de Violonchelos played an encore piece.

There were several photographers there, and hopefully they will publish some of their pictures. We wish the event had been recorded for audio playback. The event was that good.

Here is the program from last night's performance.

Larry Wilkinson has made available a few of his photographs from the concert last night.

I went down on the elevator with a very nice young man and his parents.  He looked at me and said:  "I want to buy a cello and learn how to play".   I looked at him an said:: "Me too.  I bought one in Panama City, used after I heard my first concert of Dr Casal here.  "  He smiled and asked me for more information on how I found my cello. We both left enthusiastic hoping to one day be half as good as these players"  These concerts not only bring enjoyment but as well encouragement to try something new.

A bonus we never anticipated moving here !

Alison,

Thank you for sharing this story, and also that you are learning the cello. Every time we talk I learn something new.
