Our 9/11 concert: Thanks!

We had a wonderful concert last night. Our favorite string players, Maria Sampen and Timothy Christie, joined by guests Jennifer Caine and Sally Singer, played the beautiful Cavatina from Beethoven's String Quartet in B flat, Op. 130 and Samuel Barber's Adagio for Strings. Pamela Ryker, on flute, joined the strings in Mozart's Quartet in A Major and baritone Charles Robert Stephens sang a stirring rendition of Dover Beach by Barber.

A big thank you to all who helped make this such a successful evening! An especial thank you to John Petrinovich and the Slavonian Benevolent Society for the use of the performance space in the beautiful old Slavonian Hall. And the coffee donated by Old Town Starbucks was very much appreciated by everyone as we gathered after the concert for community time. A big thank you to Carol at Katie Downs for hosting a supper for the performers at the end of the evening.

Thank you, Alexis, for greeting our friends and neighbors as they came in, and for setting out the coffee and cookies. Thank you Kate and Jim for helping to fold and stack chairs afterwards!

And, a big thank you to our neighbors and friends, old and new, for attending, this our first concert of the 2007 season. We enjoyed such a strong sense of community.
