We arrived early because we had not been to this venue before and wanted to allow time to find it. As it happened, we found it quickly and even got a free parking spot on the street. We later found out that parking at the meters is free on Sundays, Because we were early we had time to take a tour of this historic church. That was nice. The music was wonderful and we had a delightful time. Finished the afternoon with an early dinner at Kroll's on Michigan just a couple blocks south of the church. A good day!

This unique ensemble, comprised of flutist Rachael Smith, violist Erin Updegraff, and harpist Jennifer Ruggieri, offers an expanse of sensuous and evocative musical impressions.
