Photos from today's music recital

I enjoyed the concert at the Douglaston/Little Neck Library today.
It was so nice that the library gave me a rose bouquet after the performance.  

Here are some photos with one of the audiences and 
a President of the Douglaston Library. 

It was great way to celebrate the Lunar New Year.



I will be back to the library soon this year!

図書館でのライブ演奏終了しました。
バラの花束も頂き
ブラボーの拍手もいただき
お客様たちとトークもしながらの演奏会で
大満足していただけたようです。

次回は暖かい時期に
またお会いしましょう。
