Downtown Noon Concert
Held monthly at the historic Presbyterian Church, these concerts are a treat for our family. Not only do we take a sack lunch (which includes cookies or some other treat) but they also provide canned soda at the Church (which is a major draw for my boys). I made sure we could attend today for a chance to hear Rico McNeela play the violin. He is the symphony conductor so he performs infrequently. It was Outstanding! He played songs by Fritz Kreisler (whose birthday is February 2) an Austrian violinist. It was so beautiful that I got tears in my eyes. (I might also be weepy from the stress of Science Fair). The best part was how my boys seemed to take renewed interest and practiced their violin songs longer than usual!
