My orchestra was asked to re-record the Aruban National Anthem for the first time in 40 years. What an honor it was to participate in this event and make music with the choir full of gifted singers from Aruba!
Because of the significance of the occasion, we were warned that in addition to making an audio recording, the sessions would also be filmed and photographed. I wanted to respect Aruba and show my support for the project by painting the country’s flag on my nails. Thankfully it wasn’t a very complicated design.

I think the recording went well, and I’m anxious to hear the final cuts of the versions of the anthem that we did! And who knows, maybe my nails will make it into one of the video cuts as well.
