That's awesome!

How did you find out??? I just looked at the calendar on her website and it's not on there. How can I search to find out if she is coming to other locations in the western U.S.?

Haha  ;D  I guess you are not the only one old chap (as Thal uses to say) but as far as I know 1. She's happily married. And 2. She practices 13 hours a day or more. She's a real workaholic... 8) So I don't think there's much space for amourous adventures :P

Golly, I love to play, but I can't even imagine practicing for 13 hours every day.  How would you do anything else?

I would love to be able to do that, really! But I have to teach and even if I had the time I would be too exhausted after 5-8 hours. But perhaps that's a matter of training.

I was talking with a friend about going to the symphony some time so i checked my city's symphony schedule and i saw her face and was like "hmm, maybe its someone who looks similar", clicked on it, saw her name, fell out chair, panic, buy ticket.

I looked at the calendar on Valentina's website, and to my surprise I found out that she was performing 20 miles away at the end of the month! I reserved tickets, and was told it was a small concert room at the local Bösendorfer dealer, and that max 50 people would fit in there. If we turned up 15 minutes early we could choose any seat and sit next to the keyboard! This is the concert Wolfi mentioned that had been cancelled. It wasn't Valentina that cancelled it, all the other concerts due to happen there have been cancelled too. Although the miracle didn't happen, it could have done!
