A concert to warm up our spirits

March 25, 2008 - Diane Speer
I know I'm not alone in feeling this, but it sure was discouraging to wake up this morning to a snowstorm. Snow in March is a fairly common occurrence in Northeast Michigan; however, this winter seems much longer than normal. I, for one, am extremely weary of it all.

Be that as it may, life continues on and arts activities keep cropping up in abundance. Five of the area's most talented woodwind performers, who have formed Quintetto Sonare, are giving a classical concert Saturday at 7:30 p.m. at Trinity Episcopal Church. The concert is a continuation of a series started last year and coordinated by Bill Kaltrider. Bill stops by my office every so often to drop off press releases and photos, and just to chat about how well-received the series has been. It's always great fun talking with him because of his enthusiasm for music. Based on his recommendation - and he's never steered me wrong before - this concert should be outstanding. It will feature MaryAnn Hubbard on flute, Fay Wojtkowiak on oboe, Kim Gordon on clarinet, Jennifer Dean on bassoon and Brian Carter on French horn.

I'm glancing out the window as I type this, and the snow is still blowing sideways with abandon. It's nice to know we have concerts like the upcoming one by Quintetto Sonare to warm up our spirits.
