We arrived home last night from a week at the Port Townsend workshop, which was held at the University of Puget Sound in Tacoma WA, and a week at the Amherst Early Music Festival, which is held at Connecticut College, in New London, CT. Hmmm, maybe we should convince one of them to move to Hawaii! They were both great weeks – lots of music and meeting up with friends, old and new. The heat wave hit the Amherst festival in the middle of the week which made for some slow commuting between classes. As much as I dislike air conditioning I was grateful for it last week. I must remember to take one of those soakable neck cloths with me next year.
My kids’ music workshop starts next Sunday so I’ll be busy getting ready for that all week. We fly to Charlotte in mid-August for concerts with Barbara and her baroque orchestra in Davidson, Durham and Greenville, NC.
