Robert announced on his Facebook last Thursday: last guitar lesson in 2010.
I gave my last private piano lesson Monday, my last university class Tuesday.
Tomorrow (Friday 15th October) we give our last concert in the Netherlands in 2010.
I had my last rehearsal with French horn this afternoon — the last one in 2010 to prepare for the first concert in 2011.
“Can we meet for a drink before you go?”
“Do you have time for coffee?”
“Can we invite you for dinner?”
“Do we get to say good-bye?”
There is a last of everything in anticipation for the first of everything.
Next week, we will give our first public concert on mainland USA: Thursday 21st October in St John’s Episcopal Church in Jamaica Plain, Boston at 8:30 pm. It will be the second concert in a church in the USA (the first was in Makawao Union Church in Maui in 2007).
We will give our first house concert in New England – on Friday 22nd October in the home of a Suzuki piano teacher in Newton, Massachusetts.
We will meet the organisers of the first three concerts for the first time.
