April 12, 2015 concert.   L-R:  Marika Holmqvist, Nancy Kito, Rob Paravonian, Claire Smith.

YouTube comedic sensation Rob Paravonian guest starred on our April 12, 2015 concert.  Having mutually followed each other on Twitter, we asked if he'd play a movement from a Corelli trio sonata, which had the same bass line as the Pachelbel Canon in D Major (subject of Rob's "Pachelbel Rant") 

A comedian rants about how much it sucks to play Pachelbel's Canon in D on a cello. Recorded live at Penn State, this piece by comedian/musician Rob Paravonian has been a favorite on the Dr. Demento Show. Visit Rob at: http://RobPRocks.com, http://fb.com/RobPRocks, or http://twitter.com/RobPRocks

Rob agreed to play, but I kept it from our other members.  

"So how do you know Nancy?" "Ummm, she came to one of my concerts..."


Rob Paravonian (of "Pachelbel Rant" fame) reveals his true identity to Ensemble Leonarda and audience.
