It was such a delight visiting with people I haven’t seen in years as well as making new local friends. The grand piano at the beach brought locals and visitors together and reminded everyone about the importance of taking a break, gathering together outdoors, and taking time to enjoy music and sunsets. More than once, I heard someone say “Only in Half Moon Bay”.
The final music scene of the night involved a spontaneous performance of a fire dancer, Alicia Vargas, on top of the grand, while I played Debussy and Chopin. Alicia and I are both avid Zumba students at FIT Studio in Half Moon Bay, yet this was the first time we performed together. The spontaneity of it somehow added to the thrill. This gives new meaning to doing anything to keep my hands warm while playing the piano outside! There is no lack of enthusiasm from the spectators either. You’ll hear a lot of hooting and hollering in the video clip of “That Girl is on Fire”.
