Thank yous

Thursday, December 9th, 2010

I wanted to take a couple of seconds to thank some people for thier services to the music community.

Rosemary Bailey of has given her time and talents to people all over the country.  Rosemary’s talent is incredible and she shows it in every performance.  From Broadway to Jazz, Classical to Rock and Roll or Country and Gospel she puts forth her talent to the “nth” degree night after night.

Most recently she has done a Christmas project that is really something else.  What makes her so amazing is that not only is she so talented but, she also has a very unique gift of interpretation and understanding of what the music should be saying.  Her most recent Christmas project really shows off her connection to her audience and to her talent.  Understanding her fans and what they expect, what “should” be played musically and what the song writer intended.  Rosemary can seamlessly accomplish this without causing confusion to the person listening and is still able to deliver the song in its intended form.

I hope you will take the time to go to her website and hear a few clips of her Christmas CD

Holiday Memories-CD

I spoke with her this afternoon and she only has a few left so, log on to her website and order today.
The other group I want to thank is the guys at Sorrento Valley Music .  Jon and Rebecca have really stepped out onto a limb during very challenging times to open their new store.  They have such a passion for the business that they will be successful.  The other thing is their love for music education.  Rebecca has a very exciting teaching program and is working daily with her students to help them with their education and moving to the next level.
They have a full line of pianos, guitars, violins, music accessories and printed music and are working to expand their selection.  They are being very smart with their direction and taking small steps to improve every day.  So if you are looking for a piano in San Diego, Guitar in San Diego, Violin in San Diego or printed music or accessories look no further than Sorrento Valley Music.
Recently they decided to supply the San Diego Gay Mens Chorus a piano for their upcoming concert at the Birch North Park Theatre on December 11th and 12th.  Sorrento Valley Music has sent them an Estonia that has been perfectly voiced and regulated and is in tip top condition.  This is no small feat and if you know about Estonia you know just how difficult it can be to supply for an event like this.
My hat is off to Rosemary Bailey and Sorrento Valley Music for their dedication to the music industry, music and music education.
Lastly, this coming weekend is an anniversary of sorts.  The San Diego Gay Mens Chorus at is having a concert this weekend.  If you have not already purchased your tickets you should do it as soon as you can because the it is almost a sold out performance.
Hope you are celebrating during the holidays somewhere safe and sharing a great time with friends and family.
