ECU's Four Season Chamber Music Festival

On Sunday evening, Chris took the two "bigs" to a Gaudium Musicae concert at our parish.

Our season begins with a touring ensemble from East Carolina University’s Four Season Chamber Music Festival, ECU Next Gen on the Road, featuring special guest Robert McDonald, a world-renowned pianist and recording artist.
A professor of music at The Juilliard School and The Curtis Institute of Music, McDonald is a frequent accompanist to distinguished musicians, including Isaac Stern and Midori. He joins ECU faculty and students plus select Charlotte-area student musicians for a performance of chamber music masterpieces.

Mary was enraptured by the music

The concert was two hours long, so at intermission Chris obtained permission for he and the children to move up to the loft for viewing, which would allow the children to move their bodies around.

Best friends, don't let them tell you otherwise

When Mary is listening to music most carefully, she lies down.

When the children came home, John declared that the concert was "Excellent!" with two thumbs up.
