I feel very lucky sometimes as a piano technician to enjoy a few perks that most other professions don’t. Alongside being able to set my own schedule, one of the biggest fringe benefits of my job is that the view from my office changes every day.
Chloe is doing better than ever! After returning back to school in Taiwan, she was asked to perform at Milennium Park with none other than Joshua Bell via Skype for the Ronald McDonald House 40th anniversary celebration!
People have been absolutely amazing, wonderful and generous beyond belief! We were able to get a wonderful Yamaha upright piano for the new Ronald McDonald House, and it was recently moved to the new location, a humidity system installed, tuned, and since then Chloe has been serenading everyone in the new facility with Mozart, Beethoven and Rachmaninoff.
They were very anxious and stood nearby the whole time I was working on the piano and as soon as I was done Chloe came to the piano and started playing and my heart completely melted when she did. Never have I heard a child that age play with such depth of emotion. You can see the video I took below.
