Still playing after nearly 80 years -
My motto, borrowed from Dr. Seuss, is, "Don't cry because it is over - smile because it happened".Bought a new wonderful new flute at age 76 that is faith.....
Played a full trio sonata concert in 2011.......also involved in an experimental jazz ensemble, "Just Friends". Here it is 2013 and a few cats and I are back doing what we really love the most - playing ~
So one day a week I do progressive stuff on flute .~ Ain't life grand!!
The group renamed "Just Friends" gave a full length concert February 17, 2013. Another concert on October 16, 2013 with "Just Friends". The youngest cat in the band is seventy.
I still love playing classical flute, and local churches give me ample opportunity to play much of the Baroque repertoire, This is challenging after all these years, and keep me off the streets and out of trouble too!
