3 months, 1 week ago Posted in: Blog Comments Off on An Elegant Touch of Strings takes a day off to visit the sites in San Francisco

So it’s a short drive over the bridge to one of the most famous of all cities in the world. How we take it for granted, we who live so close by. But once in awhile I get a chance to see the sites. My favorite time is now with the Christmas/Holiday decorations everywhere. Afterward […]

3 months, 1 week ago Posted in: Blog Comments Off on An Elegant Touch of Strings Quartet performs in a cave!

Yes, when the occasion merits it we perform in caves. Most are wine caves, as was this one initially but these days it seems to be used for private parties such as was the case for our performance. Our string duo has performed I believe six consecutive years for this very fun corporate event. Looking […]

3 months, 2 weeks ago Posted in: Blog Comments Off on An Elegant Touch of Strings performs for a wine tasting in Solano

It’s amazing how many out-of-the-way wineries are in just Northern California alone. Hundreds, easily! This location values live music and has us perform as a violin and cello duo. It rarely gets any easier than to perform holiday music and be so appreciated by the comments and the staff couldn’t have been nicer! We had […]

The well-known Ahwahnee Hotel is now the Majestic Yosemite Hotel. Most of our performances in Yosemite are at the hotel however there are several other locations popular for special events in the Yosemite Valley as well. We performed as a string duo for a very pleasant wedding. Lots of other musicians in attendance which always […]

The entire Bay Area is getting smoke from the Paradise, CA fire. Today was as bad as I’ve seen it and unfortunately the wedding was outside. And otherwise it was a b eautiful day for a late November on the San Francisco Bay Peninsula. On the other hand the wedding went beautifully and the minister […]

4 months ago Posted in: Blog Comments Off on An Elegant Touch of Strings take a little break

Once in awhile it’s time to catch up with a friend! We checked out a town I thought might be interesting to visit- San Geronimo in Marin but actually it was a rather sleepy town and just perfect for those who like to live in sleepy towns. So then we had a back-up plan of […]

Today is just beautiful November weather here in the Bay Area and reminds me why I live here. It’s mid- November and still beautiful! So I just found maybe our favorite picture from the top of our Hayward hills performance.

What a view from the top of the Hayward hills! Our string trio lucky for a wind die-down just before we had to play or a November late afternoon performance could have been pretty cold ‘way up there’! Here’s a few favorite pics we’d like to share from our November afternoon performance:

But first I always look forward to a fine breakfast or lunch, depending on what time I need to be in the Yosemite Valley at this little diner in Mariposa. I always look for their train scene that runs the ceiling’s entire perimeter of the dining area. The craftsmanship has wonderful detail and maybe each […]

We performed a ceremony at a little church and 15 minutes later we were at this beautiful Golf Club high in the hills of San Jose and overlooking the South and East Bay Area. This hills furthest would be the Peninsula area just south of San Francisco. I liked this picture the most as it […]
