Cormorants from St Michael’s Manor in St. Mary’s County.  They were very far away, and my focus was off a little, but I liked the reflection...

St. Mary's College River Concert: July 6th

We enjoyed the holiday River Concert last Friday very much.  The Chesapeake Orchestra tends to play very well known classical works for the holiday concert, since the crowd tends to be larger and have lots of children.  Who can resist fireworks accompanied by "The 1812 Overture" and "Stars and Stripes Forever".  We are so lucky to experience such top notch music nearby!  To read my review of the July 6th Concert, check out River Concert Delights the Audience with "That Independent Feeling" at The Bay Net.  There are actually two published Bay Net stories.  My review only has one photo of the Jazz Vocalist featured at the concert, Hilary Kole.  She was fantastic.  The other story has quite a few photos and a brief description about the evening and is called "Annual River Concert Series". 

Tomorrow night's (July 13) 8 P.M. concert  is guest conducted by my past choir director and friend Larry Vote, featuring vocal works by Handel and Purcell including "Music for the Royal Fireworks" and The Hallelujah Chorus from "Messiah".  Don't miss it!

St Mary's College of MD River Concert June 29th, 2012

I've been away in Pennsylvania and Virginia for a month and just got back in time to see the 2nd wonderful River Concert of the season.  We missed the first concert on June 22 (boo hoo) which was apparently fairly stormy.  It featured two talented young sister violinists, Jessica and Katelyn Lyons   To read my review of the June 29th concert visit the BayNet at: 

More on our other adventures will follow soon.
