Hogar de Ancianos - San Ramón

I got inspired by Antarquito to go and visit and perform for this elderly home in San Ramón.
What a joyful activity that was!!

An added bonus to this activity was the fact that Antarquito with the help of his school friend got to talking with the Elderly and decided to write a list of values, where with one value each member of the home shared with us about why that word was important to them.

End result:

Then we got them together at the home's church.
The repertoire played:
Humoreske - Dvorak
Salut d Amour - Elgar
Meditation - Massenet
Suit No 1 - Bach

I missed playing with a piano for the accompaniment part on this event, but this time I used my BOSS loop station for the accompaniment part. The acoustic in the church was really good and it helped. Although on a funny note, when I asked at the end if they liked what they heard, a third of them said they had hearing problems but enjoyed it all the same.. they even asked for more!!
All and all, the smile on their faces was quite fulfilling.

I will post a video soon on a performance with the loop station as accompaniment to get some reaction on the use of it.
