Mark Tompkins / St Paul. MN
Anna...I was fortunate enough to sit in the second row at the Basilica in St. Paul for the Sinfonia presentation and witness something that was truly inspiring for a 56 yo man who suffered a tramautic brain injury 7 mo ago, and just yesterday had my 4th piano lesson here in St Paul
My mother has played since I was a child, and not one of her seven children ever took the time to learn. I am alive today by the Grace of God having lived through a horrible, death-defying, motorcycle accident, and have been blessed with a second chance at life.
I am determined to learn how to play 'this time', as I have tried on my own in the past.
Watching and listening to you from the second row was such a gift for me. My piano teacher was so jealous as she knows of you :)
I look forward to following your career and seeing you live again. Taking the time out of your busy schedule to play w the Sunfonia demonstrates how important it is to continue to give back some which you have been blessed with.
Godspeed to you Anna and hopefully one day I will be able to meet you personally and get you autograph
Blessings and Peace....Mark in St Paul
