The weather was the tail end of a heavly rainy day. Thank goodness the rains subsided significantly just in time to attend the event.. I wore a dressy blouse and slacks ensemble with matching slippers which was apropos for my expectation of this classy evening event. Of course people can dress as they feel..

It was a little disconcerting that the doors didn't open up until about 5 minutes before the show, but everyone got time to find their seats and take in the ambiance without feeling rushed. Ushers were excellent.

the music was lovely, but I think chamber music sounds best when seats are closer to the stage; mine were row ff, which is quite far away to fully appreciate the piano and violin especially. Still I am glad I went.

As a lifetime music lover and student, I have to say that this chamber concert was the best in its genre. The piano playing was exquisite and the ensemble playing heavenly. It was also very impressive to see such a large, appreciative audience...continued
