I have tried to figure out a way to go to this but I just can't make it back to Minneapolis in time to celebrate Christmas with my family. What I'm really hoping for is Tim Janus inviting Emily back to Carnegie Hall again this year, if it's close to the date of last year I have that entire week off. Other wise I probably won't be able to see Emily till Rockford in March of 2013.
and this paragraph I like: “Other than her extraordinary musical gifts, Emily Bear is a regular 11-year-old girl,” said Illick. “She’s composed an orchestral piece for us called ‘Santa Fe.’ I asked her if she wanted to conduct it. She asked me what conducting was all about, and after I told her what she’d have to do, she realized that it was within her grasp.”
Oh, I do hope somebody gets a video of that...and the entire concert...Mrs. Bear? I wish I could be there to see it. I'll be playing Emily's "Silent Night" at my church at the same time the concert starts, though, so that'll be cool. I don't think that anything this cool will ever happen near where I live, though.

Fantastic Sarah, Emily outacts the orchestra in this short sequence, in contrast to the orchestra she shows the needed passion, incredible for an 11year old. It would be fantastic if we could see the whole first movement-)))
Her dress seems to be a kind of modern version of the young Clara Wiecks dresses in the movie Spring Symphonie. So it fits to the music very well!!!

I just discovered that the whole movie " Frühlingssymphonie" is available on youtube, on german-((( So you can compare the dresses, but its an awsome fillm about Robert Schumann and his relationship with Clara Wieck.
You can also compare the lives of a prodigy - Emily -Clara
You can practically learn he backround of the first movement Emily played in Santa Fe. One main point of this concert is the fight of Robert Schumann for Clara. She was the pianist of the world premiere, 13.01.1841,172 years before Emilys concert.
The main theme of the first movement begins with C-H-A-A, italian writing of Chiara, italian version of Clara.( german wikipedia)
Here is another video! Emily playing Peralada with orchestra ;D
Also, on Emily's facebook it says :
''HAPPY NEW YEAR!!! A little present from the Santa Fe Concert (an excerpt from someone's i-phone in the audience & we will try to post a couple more video's from the same source today). ENJOY! ♩ ♪ ♫ ♬
Hi-def, complete, edited video (3 camera's) to follow in a couple of weeks...''
So we will have the full concert in 2 weeks ;D I CAN'T WAIT!!!
eulenspiegel: mastersgttom according to this tiktok Abigail was so frustrated one week before the first song that she nearly quitted and was searching for receptionists jobs at record labels vm.tiktok.com/ZMRxtW7g6/

mastersgttom: Wow! Eulenspiegel that is a powerful revelation about Abigail and the start of a great plotline for a biography on Barlow and Bear. I am getting ahead of myself, lets see what the ultimate destination is for the musical.
Sept 15, 2021 14:26:33 GMT -6
mastersgttom: And where those other doors are leading that they keep referring to but can't tell us yet. Its a glorious time to be an Emily Bear and Abigail Barlow fan. I look forward every day to return to their web sites looking for that next tidbit of news.
Sept 15, 2021 14:32:32 GMT -6
mastersgttom: Well, I have taken another step deeper into the Barlow and Bear fandom. I just pre-ordered the song book and I haven't played guitar since my high school days and I sucked at it. By the way the Spotify plays stands at 5,160,932.

eulenspiegel2: No ordering in Europe...outside USA possible....it is unbelievable....the smallest local shops in German have better websites than Hal Leonsrd
Sept 17, 2021 7:53:10 GMT -6
eulenspiegel2: perhaps there is a reason why US companies sometimes....it is all about easy ordering...even the local petits four bakeries here in Aachen ship sround the world

mastersgttom: OOP! Sorry about the repeat post. I thought I lost the first one by an improper key push. It just disappeared.
Sept 17, 2021 10:24:08 GMT -6
mastersgttom: When the girls hear about this problem I am sure that they will get it corrected, just like they did with their merchandise. Are you thinking about buying the songbook? If so what instrument do you play? Or perhaps (like me) supporting the girls.
Sept 17, 2021 10:30:25 GMT -6
mastersgttom: Just a little curious about the number of streams that Abigail posted on her Instagram of 9,065,360. I know that this is the number I got off Spotify but my question is does this represent all platforms world wide?
Sept 26, 2021 14:01:38 GMT -6
mastersgttom: For those who may be interested The Unofficial Bridgerton Musical has reached another milestone, 10,097,650 streams on Spotify. I can't put into words how amazing this is, at least to me anyway. Just wish I knew if this is world wide or just Spotify.

ursus: Does anyone know what happened to the Today Show segment which Emily and Abigail went to NYC for?
Oct 2, 2021 13:25:37 GMT -6
mastersgttom: Would that be the one that Abigail hinted at very briefly during a TIKTOK or IG post? If memory serves me correctly she mentioned that the interview was going to include a mansion tour with Judge Jennine. If that the one URSUS?
Oct 2, 2021 15:11:15 GMT -6
mastersgttom: I had forgotten about that and I think Abigails post has been deleted since. Looks like it didn't happen. Sorta like that event in London that got cancelled with no word about it from Emily or Abigail.
Oct 2, 2021 15:15:22 GMT -6
ursus: Yes that was the one which I meant, and I also thought about the London concert. However I could see that London was cancelled at the last minute because of Covid. However they did go to NYC, so it is hard to believe that was the problem in this case.
Oct 2, 2021 17:38:01 GMT -6
ursus: It looks like I was wrong.
Oct 5, 2021 10:23:42 GMT -6
mastersgttom: It lokks like we both were URSUS but it basically tells me now to not speculate too early but to just let things play themselves out. Abigail probably couldn't say anything more until the Today Show officially announced the segment.

eulenspiegel2: I informed Dieter about the spam
