Our latest newsletter is out and you can read it here: http://p0.vresp.com/5MtuRM
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 by 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!
To read a little more about our month of concerts just go to the newsletter. And if you would like to help us continue to bring Baroque chamber music to the long-term care facilities of the greater Seattle area, it’s easy and safe to do through Shunpike, our fiscal partner. Or go to our page “Donate Now” for more information.
Hope the rest of your summer is great!
