Yoko Miwa Jazz Pianist

October 2013

Thank you to everyone who came out to see the Trio on Sunday! It was a beautiful day on the Cape and our first time performing at Jazz fest Falmouth. Here are some reflections on the performance from Yoko.

“First, let me speak of the exquisite piano at Highfield Hall. It was a concert grand Mason & Hamlin, which is even bigger than a concert grand Steinway. When I first saw it I thought it may be hard to play.  Pianists have to play the instrument provided, and over the years I’ve learned how to deal with any type of piano. Sometimes the sound of a particular piano can be so intoxicating that it has a strong effect on how I play. It could be a harsh tone that doesn’t really agree with me but this piano lead me to the right place… this piano was like an old friend who was so happy to see me and I was equally happy."
