Happy Thanksgiving From FluteDaddy

Happy Thanksgiving!

Season’s greetings from Joseph Liberti and FluteDaddy. Our turkey has been pardoned and is doing a happy dance. Watch the one minute video made just for you. I have so much to be thankful for this year especially all of you. Please read the rest below the video.

Thank you one and all for helping make 2015 FluteDaddy’s best music year ever.

The band played more concerts and special events than any year before.  Our Ladder To The Moon project was a success. culminating in two performances of my compositions inspired by the  art and life of Georgia O’Keeffe at the Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center. We added lots of fresh music and new arrangements to our play list. The FluteDaddy Quartet really hit it’s stride and played our best performances ever while having great fun!.

I’d like to give a Thanksgiving shout out to: All our clients and all the wonderful Colorado musicians who performed with FluteDaddy and all of you who to turned out to listen to our music!.
