We have known Edder for years and he is a clown, one of the funniest people you will meet. It always floors me when I see him playing his cello because it truly is the ying side of his personalilty. I really feel that I ought to give a little background on Edder before I share his amazing gift but I feel it is just all too personal so all I will say is that Edder has overcome way to many odds in his life to be where he is and everyone that knows him is incredibly proud of him to see him where he is today. I have no guilt whatsoever about the girls missing a couple of hours of school to see all of this.
The performance started in the recital hall where Edder was accompanied by a phenomenal pianist and then we moved to the fabulous Frost Museum of Art where he was solo. The girls got to experience so much more that they would have done in the classroom today. Coincidentally there was an Asian exhibit which the girls just loved and one of the pieces on display is the same as the piece given to us by Lilys orphanage.

(for those of you that have read the blog for eons, when my friend Jakie had problems with her dogs and they got into the fight it was Edder that came to the rescue, it's always Edder. Well it was Edder that got bittten on the hand....oops! Fortunately he healed great and can still play this beautiful music.) Edder is the go to guy. Thank you so very much for the invitation. You were amazing. Bravo Edder, bravo.
