And here we go - board member Waltraud Tammen introduces the New Baroque Soloists.
The Historic Meeting House on the Green is filling up quickly. Last chance to get a first row seat!
The NBS string section warming up with Song-A Cho (violin), first time in Washington is Serafim
Smigelsky (cello) and Vincent Lionti (viola). Vinnie has been playing for us in several summer festivals but performing in Washington on New Year's Day was a first for him, too. As a member of the Metropolitan Opera Orchestra he had to arrange for special permission from the Met to play on this day in Washington and not in NYC.
One of the stars of the evening: Song-A Cho is getting ready for another flawless performance in Washington, CT.
Thank you Carl for all these great shots !
Thank you Greg for these great photos!

BRAVO, BRAVO New Baroque Soloists !
And now it's on to the Garden Party at "Brush Hill Gardens"
We are very excited to announce that the Brandenburg Concerto #5 will be played on a genuine harpsichord - to give you an idea listen to this classic cut played by Karl Richter in the 1970's:
Music Lovers come from near and far - like Buffalo ;-)
Linda, Ine (if you want to be at a great party, get on her A-list http://www.hiddenvalleyct.com/ and Jayne (XOXO) - it's clear, Tympani players have all the fun ;-)
The double bass player David Romano (we'd love to have you back!) here with dynamo Barbara Paul Robinson aka "the woman who broke all the glass ceilings." Some of her FIRSTS: FIRST female partner @ prominent international law firm, FIRST female President of the New York City Bar Association and book author of "Rosemary Verey: The Life and Lessons of a Legendary Gardener". Not sure how she managed to get along with Rosemary - even Charles, Prince of Wales, had problems with her LOL
Barbara's MAGIC "Brush Hill Gardens" is a MUST SEE http://www.brushhillgardens.com - and thanks to Washington Friends of Music you CAN!
Buy a concert ticket and make a donation of $50 or more and be part of the famous Brush Hill Gardens Fundraiser Party - right after the last concert on Aug 14!
Many more shots (even with me, the good looking tall guy ;-) can be found here
A BIG THANK YOU to Greg Davis of www.GGDavis.com the photographer who won a free concert ticket at the raffle WFM held at the recent Green Fair in Washington. Greg came to the opening concert and took all these great photos - there is a LOT of talent in Litchfield County!
And a HUGE THANK YOU to Bill Fore from County Wines in New Preston who provides WFM with unlimited quantities of this delicious Rose Bubbly - for the last 3 years it has been the official WFM house drink - and there is much more at his shop - wonderful wines, spirits and cheeses, too! Talk to him. http://www.newprestonct.com/countywine.html
What else do we need? Oh yes - excellent baguettes - go early to see Michael at The Pantry in Washington Depot to pick up your daily supply and much more - yummy!
