We performed 10 concerts in July, 7 duo and 3 trio concerts. We’ve never done that many in one month. It was fun and memorable.

One memory is of performing for Columbia Lutheran Home. I am always struck bLinda, Olga, Laura--Salish Sea Playersy the atmosphere when I enter the building–there is a sense of joy in the air. The audience was very involved from the very beginning, even before the concert started. Comments about the programs I was handing out, what did our name mean, how long have we been doing this. Once the concert started the questions kept right on coming–about the music, about the instruments, and about us. After the show  people lingered for a very long time to talk with us and each other. I loved the energy, the enthusiasm! What a fun performance, and I can’t wait to return to Columbia Lutheran!
