TV 52 OKLAHOMA LIVE WITH LYN HESTER

Recently I had the privilege (and what a pleasure!) to appear on Lyn Hester's show "Oklahoma Live" KSBITV and will be Lyn's Musical Guest May 5th. I am sending this message from Lyn to my Twitter Friends
I hope you will tune in. Lyn's show is more fun than a barrel of monkeys. Mozart feels right at home there, so be there when I share the piano bench with her! and enjoy the show on a regular basis! The show airs at Noon.
Thank you.
Wayne


Thank you for being on Oklahoma Live and supporting our mission to promote Oklahoma talent, events and businesses.
I would like to ask for a favor. Would you please tell your friends and colleagues what we are doing? With more people watching we will be able to continue to provide a forum for Oklahoma musicians, artists, authors, businesses and organizations.
I post clips from each show on the Oklahoma Live Facebook page and the KSBITV.com website. if you want to take those and link them to your page or website that would be stupendous.
Periodically I will let you know what we are doing - for instance we will be live at the Oklahoma Arts Festival on April 29th and we will be having a concert at Frontier City on June 3rd (more to come on that).
Thank you so much for your assistance and belief in this new adventure.

McEVILLY-MOZART FOR MOTHERS DAY

Mozart for Mother's Day Concert at Downtown Library

"M" is for "Mother" and "the million things she gave me," but "M" can also stand for "Mozart."

But on Sunday, May 8, 2011 at the Downtown Library, 300 Park Avenue, the letter “m” will mean “masterpiece” when master pianist Wayne McEvilly presents “Mozart for Mother’s Day,” a free concert. The music begins at 2:00p.m. The program will be held in the library’s fourth floor 46th Star Auditorium and is suitable for all ages.

McEvilly’s partnership with the classics of the piano repertoire has been a favorite of MLS library listeners since his move from California to Oklahoma City in 2004. This will be his 7th annual Mozart For Mothers Day concert at the Downtown Library.

This concert McEvilly says “is part of my work to offer performances of Mozart, and other great composers, to everyone, all ages, no exclusions.”

A previous “Mozart for Mother’s Day” concert at the Downtown Library attracted an audience from 1 to 101 years of age, enthusiastic teens, children with their families, working men and women, seniors and professionals. “In a word,” McEvilly said, “everyone.”

A Word About Commenting On Blogs

As a still fledgling blogger I of course appreciate the mere fact that someone has been by one of posts and has taken the time to have written any comment whatever, be it ever so seemingly slight.
I am keenly aware that "in today's world" (Isn't that a funny phrase? there is so much comedic potential there, but I'm not a standup comedian!) - well, just to be here and paying attention to your blog indicates that of all the vast data calling for my attention, I have chosen to be here, and in some sense "with you" or "with your consciousness" for these moments.
In closing, let me sum up:
Life is precious. Each moment is an eternity, yet (paradox) we have only a limited number of these eternal moments available to us.
So I am grateful when someone stops by long enough quite simply to say "Great post!"
And I can say. Thank you.
I'm here to communicate!
