Make Music Day

We did our part to help the airwaves vibrate differently on "Make Music Day" yesterday. It was so much fun!

Three Room Pressers Peter Carlfates and Kathi Georges took trumpet and flute and joined Low Tones for All Occasions man Dave Hofstra (on Sousaphone!) for a 6-song set in the little Plaza at Prince Street and 6th Ave. Numbers include Jobim's Wave and One Note Samba, along with the out-of-season-but-still-pleasin' Autumn Leaves, and a flute/sousaphone duet on Summertime.

The trio was inadvertantly joined at odd moments by amplified drum beats from the hip hop performers that were setting up for the evening show. But even these beats somehow worked with the oddball trio.

Several people tapped their toes and smiled.

What more do you want?

How fun! Sorry I missed the dynamic, multi-talented TRP duo. Can't wait until next weekend.
