Dr. Kevin & Becky Frankenberger Anniversary, Travaglione's, Oct. 2 2006

I would like to thank Cheryl Travaglione for having me perform cello solos for the anniversary of Dr. Kevin & Becky Frankenberger (his doctorate is in education administration and he is retired except for some travelling lectures, I believe). Cheryl and her chef opened her restaurant (in Shelton, WA) on a Monday when she would normally have been closed, especially for this event. I played for about an hour, combining classical with standards. The Frankenbergers heaped as many happy compliments on me as possible, it seemed. I could tell they were having a wonderful time, enjoying the food, wine, my music and each other's company. Once again, I feel honored to have become part of such a special and memorable event as this.
