Harp at Tattersall's Club


video

On Sunday, my friend Momo and i, were invited to play the harp for the Queensland Pop's Orchestra High Tea.  We played three duets together: Amazing Grace, O Mio Bambino Caro and My Heart Will Go On (Titanic).  I was really proud of myself because i didn't make any mistakes, apart from some tiny ones which no one noticed...!  A flutist, pianist and singer also performed as well as us, the two harpists!  Oh sorry, i forgot to mention that i have been playing the harp for five year and a half!  

I was a bit stressed but playing with someone else is always easier as when you make a mistake the audience doesn't know if it's you or the other person.  Still it's always hard because you can't go too fast or too slow, you have to be on time otherwise it is really obvious when you make a mistake in a duet... But don't worry we were amazing (just being modest!)  Apparently, all the money from this 'High Tea' went to our school so Momo and i had to wear our school uniform as we were representing the school

I am very grateful to have had this opportunity; the food was so yummy, the entertainment unbelievable and everyone was interesting to talk to!  Hopefully, they'll contact me again so i can play some duets and maybe even solos!  So that was the highlight of my week-end, hopefully yours went well too!  I shall leave you with an awesome video -produced by me- and some amazing pictures... Jeez, i'm being very modest today!
