Have you ever heard a Saxophone Quartet play symphonic music? Here at First Reformed Church, we had a chance of doing just that on Wednesday, May 9. It was a wonderful concert, a piece of music history, if you will, because it made abundantly clear how the saxophone family of instruments has moved into the mainstream of serious music.
We are grateful to the Manhattan Saxophone Quartet. In addition to their music, they also provided a most engaging question & answer session for the audience following the concert.
The attention of the attending school children was also remarkable; just see the enclosed pictures. In addition, several children presented Janet Waanders with self-made pictures in order to show their gratitude for her organizing the recital series.
Similarly important was the work of Ethel Salamone and Joan Fekete, as both women led an army of providers and servers during the lunches that followed each of the recitals. Concert and lunch on May 9 provided a wonderful conclusion for the spring season of the Recital Series.
