ABC Wednesday-Virtuosos



String instruments make my heart sing.  Our neighborhood JCC (Jewish Community Center) has an annual series of FREE concerts each year which we always attend. The musicians are dedicated as well as gifted. On May 18, 2009 I posted several photos of the concert I had attended then, also with more explanation. Go here to see more and to read about the program. The new concertmaster is a female who is from Russia, and she has been well-received by the community of music lovers of all faiths.  I feel so lucky to be living in this city and especially my neighborhood that prizes the fine arts as it does.

  3. Lovely - you've just reminded me that we've got some lunchtime free concerts in Hyde Town Hall for the next few Fridays - I hope to manage to find the time to get down to at least one of them.

  5. Since I play violin, I really like this posting! The Minnesota Sinfonia played in Eagan at Caponi Art park on Sunday but unfortunately I missed it! Darn!

  9. A trio of virtuoso violinists! Perfect!

    I love strings, too. We heard a wonderful Vivaldi concert in Venice recently. If only I wasn't still doing Greyhounds, huh? LOL!

    On behalf of the team, thanks for taking part in ABC Wednesday this week! :)
