A Lovely Day for a Butterfly Party

I get to play for so many delightful occasions.butterfly3

Today I took my harp to SpringRidge Court at Charbonneau to perform for their butterfly release party. 

What does one play for a butterfly release? Something fluttery! I dug into my repertoire for some waltzes about love and (in)fidelity: Shadow Waltz, True Love, Hi-Lili Hi Lo, and my favorite for the day, I Feel Pretty (from West Side Story). And for fun, I tucked my book about Bugs & Butterflies (Singing Wings) in my gig bag.

I loved how beautifully they decorated the patio for this occasion.

Some of the butterflies stayed to drink up the sugar water on the resident’s hands. 

What a perfect occasion for harp music. I hope this is the first of many butterfly parties I get to accompany.
