Holly continues to dream up ideas and make them come true. The seed of this idea has been around for a long time.Earlier in 2015 the idea was pitched to the Waterfront Development Corporation of Halifax. With their amazing sponsorship the project started to move. What took only 6 hours to perform took hundreds of hours to plan. Buy the silk, rent the tent and a grand piano. Forms and regulations, insurance and security. Beautiful sights and sound only look easy. By the end of September, the floor plan and structure was figured out, Jennifer King was compiling and practicing a selection of nocturnes spanning 200 years of composers. Holly was still working on all the other aspects of the production.
On the morning of October 17th setup on the Halifax Waterfront began. The tent arrived and went up then the inner structure was built and the silk walls were stretched in place by Holly. At 4pm the grand piano was gently put in place. The last step was for Holly to put down the drop sheets and set up her paints. 6pm and the start of Nocturne approached quickly; the sides of the tent were taken down, interior lights turned on; and the music and painting began. Holly paints free hand, no pre-drawing. The tent kept the art and piano dry during an hour or so of rain. Crowds grew and watched right through until midnight. A video of the event will be ready shortly after editing.
