Celtic Concerto Concert

After much preparation, the Celtic Concerto concert was a huge success! I’m incredibly grateful to each of the fantastic musicians who made the music sound so lovely, and to our wonderful audience who filled the house.  Everyone enjoyed the variety of instrumental combinations.

IMG_0368 (800x533)We enjoyed delving into classical music by playing a unique arrangement of several movements from a Corelli Sonata.

IMG_0343 (800x533)Sarah and Ross played a beautiful arrangement of Silent Night.

IMG_0374 (800x533)Who would have thought that harp and soprano sax would be a combo – but they were absolutely lovey on Still, Still, Still.

IMG_0370 (800x533)And they managed to convince me to play a pedal harp solo!

IMG_0380 (800x533)Kathrina, Bethany, Ashley and Maren did a beautiful job with a string quartet medley of Christmas songs.
