    Yesterday’s chamber concert at St. Joseph’s hall was excellent. The program was thoughtful, the music was beautiful l and the musicians are world class. Music in the Mountains will be bringing us some very special music culminating with the Patriotic Pops concert on July 3. I hope to see you and your readers at the concerts.
