Classical Caber: Dirk Does Debussy… ON HIS NEW PIANO!!!!!

We did it! YOU did it!!! Dirk’s piano arrived today! Thank you so, so much to everyone who supported us via our GoFundMe campaign… Dirk and I are still completely and utterly overwhelmed! We’re busy packaging up all the premiums you guys requested… but first, here’s a brief “thank you” message from Dirk, accompanied by a video I shot of him playing it for the very first time. It’s the first of many, many more performances to come… but for now, we hope you enjoy Claude Debussy’s “La Fille aux cheveux de lin” … The Girl with the Flaxen Hair.

(If the video doesn’t play, try putting your mobile device into landscape mode first, or use this alternate link.)

    *pass the kleenex* It is so wonderful *sniffle* seeing you sitting there playing YOUR piano in YOUR home and getting all misty-eyed yourself. Did Jesse sniffle with joy in the background? 😉 Thank you for, not only sharing your big moment with us, as per your usual, but also allowing us to truly be a part of, to give back to you two a bit of what you give to all of us. So, you’re welcome and thank YOU!

    Lovely. I’d love to hear you play Clair De Lune sometime. It was my moms favorite song and it always reminds me of her. I’m so happy to have helped in a small way. I’m glad Susan introduced us and I hope to see you again soon. — Lynn
