Last week was a great fun. Our friends Owen, Meena, and Claire were here and we lived together for a week making music almost non-stop punctuated by meals, sleeping, conversation, sauna, and snowshoeing. I can't imagine a better combination of activities. On Tuesday, we lead a "Very Open Rehearsal" giving some Northfielders a chance to get in on the early stages of a rehearsal. On Thursday we gave two interactive performances for Northfield elementary and middle schools, sponsored by the Paine Mountain Arts Council.

All three concerts over the weekend had a fantastic turnout and went really well. Friday was at the Green Mountain Girls' farm (preceded by a spectacular soup supper). Saturday afternoon we enjoyed trying out another new venue for classical music - a movie theater - The Savoy in Montpelier. We welcomed many families and had a full house. We enjoyed some popcorn during intermission and after the concert we stuck around and watched a movie! Sunday afternoon we were blessed to perform in the beautiful Warren United Church, a fantastic ending to our week.
Personally, I would just like to say what a joy it was making music with Owen, Meena, Claire, and Mary - such fine musicians - and SUCH DEDICATED artists.
With fond memories,
