I entertained as pianist-singer; sang and played along with 3 colleagues from the Bayerische Staatsoper (Joan Campbell, Jason Alexander Smith and Sarah Yorke)  at an Election Party for Barack Obama at the Restaurant, Bushing Garten in Munich on the night of Nov. 4th.

We were later joined by Steve Hooks-saxophonist,  John Paiva-guitarist, and then Roberta Kelly, singer).

And have been in a state of euphoria ever since.

Fasching Concert at the Bavarian State Opera

1990, on the occasion of the annual Fasching (Carnival) Concert, given that year at the famed rococco Cuvilliés Theatre, Rita was accompanied at the piano by Kammersänger Ferry Gruber, singing “Lili Marlene” (of course, under a lamppost), with great success and even recognition from the Press.

These photos show her in rehearsal and performance for that Concert.

When your soul is in pain, I will give you my hand;
If this doesn’t reach you, I will give you an embrace;
If this doesn’t reach you, I will give you caresses;
If this is not enough, I will give you a kiss;
If this does not suffice, I will make love to you;
and if all this does not satisfy,
I will give you music.

I find this poem by Argentinian poet Mechi Alvarellos, very moving…
