So I narrated Peter and the Wolf for the Honolulu Symphony.
It was a lot of fun. 
I had my own parking space.
Not to be confused with this one. 
This is where Andreas Delfs parks. 
He was the conductor. Really nice guy.
I also had a dressing room. 
And when I went to the closet, I found my jacket and pants with an added item. 
Is this something that the stylist wants me to wear. 
How do I wear it? 
My buddy Matt tried to help me out.
I don't think I can pull this off. 

So I went without.

I don't get that scarf thing either! Looks like you and your buddy gave it a gallant try.

You must have had fun with the narration. Can it be heard anywhere?

Mahalo for all that you do outside of your LOST commitments and withing our local community!

I guess you "scarfed" down Peter & the Wolf!!

New Yorker wannabes said...

It was a lovely scarf though :-)

did someone record you so we can listen to your narration? That would be nice :-)

take care Jorge

IslandPearl said...

I was wondering if you were going to post about this...

You were terrific...with or without the Pavoratti rag.

We were there on Saturday night (2 rows behind Dog Chapman and family...who KNEW??)

Thoroughly enjoyed the evening and your performance.


Barracuda said...

I am green with envy - about everything (except the scarf!)

Tasha Who? said...

That is a pretty scarf, but I'd think that would have had been a tad bit distracting when everyone else's clothing was dark.

I love "Peter and the Wolf"... our orchestra played it here not too long ago, sans narration.

Please Type Legibly said...

Ummm, yeah....lose the scarf. But the jacket was nice. Glad you had fun.

Laura Caçoeiro said...

You look very elegant. :)

And you use your artistic side in another way.

Robbi said...

Sounds like a great time was had...

Loved the scarf!
Hope you had fun!

Bethany James Leigh Shady said...

no mention of the dog/shark/headless turtle story?

awww, boo.

You know, in my childhood in Moscow I visited some times "Peter and Wolf" in Moscow Conservatory (ok, in Russian :-)). I loved this combination of music and language. It's great you are also reading it now (even if in English) - and I wish I were there and could hear your voice.

P.S. Also I want to listen Terry reading letters.

AllBlueZoo said...

I was so mad I couldn't make it to that performance! I had already taken my boys to A Christmas Carol at Tenney Theater and Peter Pan at Diamond Head Theater and figured there would be a mutiny if I put them through any more "culture"!

I imagine is was an amazing evening and I hope to catch a similar one in the future!

Oh, and thanks for being such an active part of the island life...seems like you are always popping up in different events like this and I think it is wonderful!

Miztification said...

I wish I could have heard your narration of Peter and the Wolf too. If there are plans to record it or it can be heard anywhere, please definitely let us know.

lostinphilly said...

It must have been alot of fun. But the scarf just didn't belong; you did the right thing by ditching it! Peace!

redelf said...

I thought you looked dashing with the scarf thingie! Very opera singer dude.

I would have loved to seen and heard the performance!

Jodi said...

I would have went without too.

Justin Shady said...

Dude, that's an aviator scarf. It was for you to wear as you flew out on the plane they were giving you out back. Sadly, you left early, so they gave it to the Maestro. And by "Maestro" I mean "Mark Metcalf."

ValMo said...

What? That scarf was super-classy.
That is very cool that you did that. I always liked listening to that as a kid.

Capcom said...

Awesome, congrats on the experience and getting chosen! Well, you are on your way to maestro stature, rest assured. :-)

The scarf looks good! Tres chic.

noah and sammi said...

you had my kids excited the whole time. we were lucky enough to sit in the front row too- so between all the loud instruments & the cool guy from lost-
it was a hit. thanks so much. you were great.

Karin said...

Where's the pic of DOG??

Dr Mum said...

It might have worked if you wore your buddy's hat aswell....

LLG70 said...

Hope you got paid. The orchestra hasn't been paid in months >:o A friend of mine just left there because of it.
An orchestra I play in is doing P&W next season. Wish we could afford you :)

Becky said...

ROFLMAO! I think you looked kind of dashing in the last pic with the scarf. I also wish I could hear this somewhere. I loooove Peter and the Wolf. Oh, the music! It brings me back to my childhood!

There was this guy who believed very much in true love and decided to take his time to wait for his right girl to appear. He believed that there would definitely be someone special out there for him, but none came.
Every year at Christmas, his ex-girlfriend would return from Vancouver to look him up. He was aware that she still held some hope of re-kindling the past romance with him. He did not wish to mislead her in any way. nike shoxsSo he would always get one of his girl friends to pose as his steady whenever she came back. That went on for several years and each year, the guy would get a different girl to pose as his romantic interest. So whenever the ex-girlfriend came to visit him, she would be led into believing that it was all over between her and the guy. nike womens shoes The girl took all those rather well, often trying to casually tease him about his different girlfriends, or so, as it seemed! In fact, the girl often wept in secret whenever she saw him with another girl, but she was too proud to admit it. Still, every Christmas, she returned, hoping to re-kindle some form of romance. But each time, she returned to Vancouver feeling disappointed.
Finally she decided that she could not play that game any longer. puma mens shoes Therefore, she confronted him and professed that after all those years, he was still the only man that she had ever loved. mens puma shoesAlthough the guy knew of her feelings for him, he was still taken back and have never expected her to react that way. He always thought that she would slowly forget about him over time and come to terms that it was all over between them. nike shox Although he was touched by her undying love for him and wanted so much to accept her again, he remembered why he rejected her in the first place-she was not the one he wanted. nike 360 air maxSo he hardened his heart and turned her down cruelly. nike running shoesSince then, three years have passed and the girl never return anymore. They never even wrote to each other. NIKE air shoes The guy went on with his life..... still searching for the one but somehow deep inside him, he missed the girl.
On the Christmas of 1995, he went to his friend's party alone. "Hey, how come all alone this year? Where are all your girlfriends? What happened to that Vancouver babe who joins you every Christmas?", asked one of his friend.nike air max He felt warm and comforted by his friend's queries about her, still he just surged on.
Then, he came upon one of his many girlfriends whom he once requested to pose as his steady. He wanted so much to ignore her ..... not that he was impolite,wholesale nike shoes but because at that moment, he just didn't feel comfortable with those girlfriends anymore. nike shox torchIt was almost like he was being judged by them. The girl saw him and shouted across the floor for him. Unable to avoid her, he went up to acknowledge her.
"Hi......how are you? Enjoying the party?" the girl asked.
"Sure.....yeah!", he replied.
She was slightly tipsy..... must be from the whiskey on her hand.

In 1981, ed hardy and his wife formed Hardy Marks Publications. In 2004, Christian Bale licensed the rights to produce the high-end Ed Hardy UK line, which is based on Hardy's imagery. Prior to the ed hardy clothing line, Bale was the Head Designer at Von Dutch Originals, which marketed the imagery of Kenny Howard.
