Last year I hosted a small gathering here. Unfortunately I was taken ill on the day which spoilt it for me.

Anyway I propose to repeat the party, although not the sickness, this year.

Accommodation is available for those who want it. Other goodies will also be available, details available when I have them.

I am not sure of the exact date at this stage because I have to ascertain which weekend the local music festival will be held as I want the two events to coincide.

Hmm, I think you're on to something there.
We had coffee at your house in Bulgaria!
And beer!
And piano music!

Were I single, I would be more interested. My wife does not play and does not make wow! noises at my (piano smile ) performances.

Bulgaria is no doubt a beautiful country. I could fly direct to Sofia. How far is it from your location?

Do you have an exact date for the event? There is a chance that I may attend, but I have to plan some time ahead. Can you say anything about what instrument will be available?

As a Bulgaria alumna, I can address some of these questions:

We rented a car and drove from Sofia. The drive is just over 2 hours if you know where you are going, which we did not. The Aussies hired a driver and also managed to arrive safely at Phillip's house.

Bulgaria is indeed beautiful, in a Bulgarian sort of way.

As for what instrument will be available, I am sure there will be more than one, and I'll leave it to Phillip to introduce his collection of pianos.

Pianists and non-pianists shared a remarkable experience at Veneta Neynska's performance.

Likely to be around the weekend of 7/8 July. I keep open house most of the summer but that should be the focus for pianists. I just have to get dates confirmed for the music festival. Last year I arranged my party for the music festival weekend, then the "organisers" changed their date.
