Balada Mexicana

1st December

Mexican classical guitarist, Morgan Szymanski, invited me to Bolivar Hall to hear him, a pianist and a singer in Balada Mexicana. A Celebration of Classical Music.

Morgan has asked me to respond to his music through my artwork for a project he is running: The Sketches of Mexico Project. The above sketch of Morgan playing the captivating and beautiful Mexican music was drawn during the performance.

Unfortunately the pianist due to play was ill, a marvelous pianist took her place but I didn’t catch his name. Tenor Jesus Leon sang accompanied by Morgan and by the piano.

Today I start work on a painting on canvas in oils and acrylic for Morgan Szymanski for The Sketches of Mexico Project.

Still a chance to hear Morgan Szymanski if you live near Sleaford at Sleaford Music Club, 9/12/2011.
