Special of the day: music

Local performer’s accolades include playing with Sinatra
Pianist and multi-lingual vocalist Lee Gabor is now performing romantic dinner music on Thursday and Friday evenings from 6:30 – 9:30 p.m. at Two Turtle Doves Restaurant, 102 N. Dallas St. in Palmer.
Gabor recently moved to the Palmer area of Ellis County to be near her son, Rocky Carlson, who owns and operates Eagle Rock Golf Club on I-45 in Ennis. For a number of years, she entertained in major cities throughout the United States as a soloist and with various sized groups. From 1985 through 1995, she was Artist in Residence at Gleneagles Country Club in Plano, where she played and sang for fine dining.
Before I was born, my mother prayed for a musically talented child,” Gabor said. “She played piano, organ and other instruments for church. When I was 2 years old, Mother sat me on the piano bench and placed my fingers on the keys. I’m sure I banged away. However, as early as I can remember, I began playing piano by ear. I played for Sunday School classes and then as a child, I played in the main services on Sunday mornings and nights and Wednesday nights. At 12, my mother died, and I moved to playing organ for the main church services, but continued on piano for Sunday School.”
