YOUR MOMENT OF MUSIC AND ART WEEK 34 from Pam and Wendell, August 18, 2019

Dear Friends,

"Gray November" is the 2nd piece in my work called THREE SCENES FROM POLAND (pamelahowland.com). https://youtu.be/mow3KBJTQYU These pieces were written as reflections on my year there (last week was the first - “Field of Poppies”, and next week will feature the third movement - “Golden Summer (Michael and Briana’s Song)”.

“Gray November” especially focuses on the gray, yes-depressing, world of November in Poland! I enjoyed finding the colors on the piano to express the melancholy, sorrow, and grief that this weather triggered. Wendell's painting "Dark Sky with Red Hills" (acrylic on canvas, 24 x 24, 2011 wendellmyers.com ) is the perfect complement.

Although enjoy is probably not the right word, we hope this fusion is meaningful to you.

All the best,

Pam and Wendell

Dear Friends,

It is our pleasure to head into the week of July 4th by announcing our month-long feature of American music, of course combined with Wendell’s paintings. https://youtu.be/yFu1qwV4YzU

Scott Joplin has to be one of the greatest composers - what an amazing ability he had to evoke joy! Here is “Maple Leaf Rag” with Wendell’s “Flowers in a Vase #2” (acrylic on paper, 11 x 7.5) wendellmyers.com

Enjoy!

For the start of summer - marking 1/2 way into this year - we present this very jaunty mazurka in C major by Chopin fused with Wendell's gorgeous painting of Polish flowers called "Flowers in a Vase" (acrylic on paper, 7.5 x 11).

This is one of our favorite MOMENTS to date. We hope you enjoy this new fusion!

All the best

Poland Concert Photos & YOUR MOMENT OF MUSIC AND ART WEEK 23 from Pam and Wendell, June 2, 2019

Poland Concert Photos & YOUR MOMENT OF MUSIC AND ART WEEK 23 from Pam and Wendell, June 2, 2019

Dear Friends,

This week, on our return from Poland, I wanted to share with you some photos from my last concert there, this past Monday night, May 27th, with Stan Breckenridge. We were at the beautiful Adam Mickiewicz Aula in Poznan and had a wonderful and enthusiastic audience of at least 500. This concert on American Memorial Day was called “Songs of Struggle and Freedom” featuring spirituals to Gershwin and beyond. We included piano four-hands, solos, readings of American authors and singing. It is always fun to collaborate with jazz pianist Stan Breckenridge!

And, of course, we have a new MOMENT ready to celebrate the beginning of a new month. We are pairing the beautifully reflective Beatles tune, "In My Life," with Wendell's painting called "Trees of Many Colors" (acrylic on paper mounted on panel 10 x 10). We hope you will take a moment to reflect and enjoy this - it is one of our favorites so far! pamelahowland.com wendellmyers.com https://youtu.be/RZG_5kU78QI (either click this link or scroll to the end).

Wishing a very happy new first week of June!

Pam and Wendell
