Welcome to the final day of the ’20 #RRBC WC&BE SPONSORS BLOG TOUR! @Kirazian @nonniejules @RRBC_Org @RRBC_RWISA @Tweets4RWISA

Hello, friends, and welcome to the final day of RRBC’S 2020 WC&BE SPONSORS BLOG TOUR!  As you probably are aware by now, each year, the wonderful members of the club donate to this event to ensure that we are able to offer our $100 Amazon Gift Card Gift Basket raffle and we want to show them just how much we appreciate their kindness and generosity.

I am so honored to host one of RRBC’s special members, Author, Lisa Kirazian!  I’m so happy to share two of her books, “BRAVURA” & “CADENZA” with you today, and since this is a series, I will link back to the stop of the other book in the series, “APPASSIONATO.”

Bravura by Lisa Kirazian

Luminous violinist Kate Driscoll, and her temperamental pianist brother, Neil, try to escape a troubled family upbringing in Somerset when they are accepted to the Royal School of Music in London in 1959. There, they meet their lifelong friends and loves: Anne Curtis, a quiet cellist secretly in love with Neil; Colin Andrews, a Welsh flautist and bartender; Jeremy Longbourne, a witty clarinetist; and Maggie Crawford, a head-turning American soprano. When the young prodigies near graduation, the youth movement, British rock explosion and Vietnam get under way, changing all their lives. They give everything they have to reach the world stage.

But Kate and Neil’s lives and careers take different turns, through the years. They endure both triumph and heartbreak, only coming together again when they need each other the most. A sister and brother’s journey to wholeness comes full circle decades later, when one of their children, Jenny, embarks on her own musical journey.

Check out the trailer for BRAVURA!

Cadenza by Lisa Kirazian

In Cadenza, the final book of “The Music We Made” series, the young tenor Brian Martin finds himself on the cusp of superstardom and marriage, until he is compelled to leave behind his distinguished musical family, and his fiancé, in London, to visit the U.S. to see where his famous late grandmother, Maggie Crawford, the only other opera singer in the family, grew up. His journey takes him to Marshall, Minnesota, and Maggie’s hometown high school, where he meets the music teacher, Laura Jones, who helps him with his family history in more ways than he could have imagined.

Check out the trailer for CADENZA!

To learn more about Lisa’s 2nd title in this series, APPASSIONATO, you’ll have to run over to the fabulous blog of Author, Linda Mims!
