Nora was a shelter cat at Cherry Hill, New Jersey when she was adopted by a couple, Betsy and Burnell.
Betsy teaches piano in her home, which has two grand pianos.
When Nora was a year old, she spontaneously began playing the piano, with a preference for the Yamaha. She plays only when the mood strikes her, usually several times a day.
Nora inspired Lithuanian composer/conductor Mindaugas Piečaitis, to compose “Catcerto” – a chamber orchestra piece featuring Nora on the piano.
On June 5, 2009, “Catcerto” was performed publicly for the first time by the Klaipėda Chamber Orchestra. Klaipėda is Piečaitis’ home town; he is the conductor of the Klaipėda Chamber Orchestra.
Here’s Nora playing solo, by ear, then a duet!
On March 6, 2019, Piečaitis conducted the Klaipėda Chamber Orchestra in a 10th anniversary performance of “Catcerto”.
