My Father Serenading My Mother

My Father Serenading My Mother on a Valentine's Day.

Dad loves to play with that cheap harmonica he always carry in his pocket mostly for enjoyment and light practice. The wear and tear on the reed plates made it quite difficult to create modulations and expressions.

He owns another three of them, in top condition, including an expensive chromatic harmonica.  

As we were enjoying the beautiful sunset, my younger brother Marco -a former TV series writer for a major Filipino network and also a gifted musician, saw an opportunity for a romantic shoot.

But that meant suspending $4000 worth of camera and equipment over a shallow pool to get the best acceptable composition.

...And that Dad's old, practice harmonica will have to do. 

We were seriously running out sunlight.

There was no time for rehearsals or retakes.

So here it is, enjoy an unrehearsed, live harmonica performance of my father serenading my mother on a Valentine's Day, as we celebrated the Birthday of my lovely Sister-in-Law Grace Flores Soriano, last year at Las Casas Filipinas de Acuzar.

My parents recently celebrated their 50th Wedding Anniversary.

The footage was not as smooth as expected. A jib arm/crane is the tool for the job but the three-man balancing act made it more memorable.

Right. May diperensya pa reed plates that makes it doubly hard to hit those notes. Thanks. I will show him the entire thread. It will definitely make his day.
