Steinway Society.

So yesterday, we went to Palm Desert.  Kitty and Timmy were winners in last months competition run by the Steinway Society of Riverside County, and the winners’ concert was yesterday at Cal State.  It was a fun day for Idyllwild Arts not only because we had two winners performing, but we also took a film crew!  8 or so student filmmakers have been working on a documentary all year, chronicling the Steinway competition.  I was so proud of them.  Emily (the director) was bustling about, making sure the cameramen and women got exactly the shots she wanted.  At the same time, they were all completely professional, quiet, and respectful of the fact that they were taping a LIVE performance that still needed to be appreciated by a live audience.  I can’t wait to see the finished product.  Kitty and Timmy played brilliantly, they were at the end of a long concert and were basically completely cold when they took the stage. But they pulled it out like the pros they are.  Sometimes in real life you just don’t get a chance to warm up.

    Hi, I noticed your film crew at the Steinway Concert on
    Sunday doing a great job. Our daughter also played in the junior division, her name is Vevina-Anne Swanson.
    I am just wondering if in the future there will be any chance of watching the documentary that you took of the recital.
