We love playing this beautiful song from Pixar's Coco. Luis' family celebrates Dia de los Muertos, which is the featured holiday in the movie, and we thought it would be nice to make a video of the main song.
I had the privilege of seeing the movie premiere at Pixar Studios in Emeryville, CA because of my sister's position there. Even cooler, my grandfather's picture is featured in the credits of the movie!
I really enjoyed drawing the titles. If you would like to purchase any of my art, go to the tab "Art for Sale" or e-mail me for a custom commission.
This song was one of Luis' adds to our song list, and we love playing it! It's super fun and catchy and it got us a nice tip the other day at our gig. "Electric Love" by Børns doesn't appear to have hit the mainstream but it's definitely worth giving it a listen. Hope everyone enjoys our violin and guitar cover.
It was such an honor to get to film this livestream concert with Jennifer Frautschi. She performed the Sibelius Violin Concerto and can go from beautiful melancholy to beast-mode in a split second . Make sure to check out her performance online November 7-10 @ brevardsymphony.com/brahms2
Smile by Charlie Chaplin
This song makes me smile and cry at the same time, I love it so much.
I had a morning wedding at Leu Gardens where I played electric violin to backing tracks. The main song request was A Thousand Years for the Processional and Recessional, but starting at different parts in the song. For this I made 2 separate tracks with different loops so I could anticipate longer or shorter needs. This is an example of why it's good to also be somewhat adequate at audio editing within a DAW! I use Logic Pro.
Cocoa Beach 10K
Amy & Luis got to come back to perform at the Cocoa Beach Race (usually a Half Marathon but changed to a 10K this year due to the circumstances). Last year we had a great time and this year was even better! It was nice to see some familiar faces.
I got to use my sign that was made for me last week at the Drive-Thru Senior Expo. We also saw a big crab in the sand! It scared me and I screamed but it was so cool to see.
We can't wait to perform at the next race :-)
Snow White Cottage
Amy & Luis played a wedding at Estate on the Halifax today and loved the beautiful acoustics in the chapel. The bride walked to "One Song" from Disney's Snow White and the Seven Dwarves and the recessional was one of our favorites, "This Will Be (An Everlasting Love)" made famous by Natalie Cole.
The cocktail hour took place at the Snow White Cottage, surrounded by beautiful gardens and ponds. We loved watching the turtles swim by!
Orchestra Live Stream
Amid the 2020 COVID-19 outbreak in the United States, many live performances were cancelled or switched to live stream. Brevard Symphony Orchestra is among the many orchestras adapting to the current conditions.
Here is a screenshot from Brevard Symphony Orchestra's trailer for the most recent concert, featuring Beethoven Symphony No. 6. You can see me at the front of the picture with my super long ponytail!
The Balcony Orlando
This gorgeous wedding took place in the middle of Downtown Orlando at The Balcony. I especially enjoyed the view and playing the Star Wars Main Theme for the Groom's entrance.
It was also nice that a high-rise condo resident found me on my way out to ask for information for a wedding!
Violinist with a habit for anything creative.
