We spent some time on the waterfront in the morning. I spotted this fish, but have not looked it up to figure out what it is.
These two pelicans were bobbing around together the whole while we sat there.
We got there early and set up our ticket sales table. It was quiet for a long while so I checked my watch and the brochure to make sure we were in the right place on the right day. Concert patrons began arriving between six and six-thirty. The doors open at seven.
Students get into the concerts for free. I snapped a picture of these three before the concert.
The quartet played Haydn’s String Quartet in G minor, Op 74, No. 3. They play with a lot of energy. Next was Kaufman’s String Quarter No. 6, “The Urban”. I did not care for that piece, which sounded like a lot of noise to me. I was glad when it was over.
After intermission, they played Grieg’s String Quartet in G minor, Opus 27, No. 1. This was the best piece yet, but it took some concentration to appreciate it. Whether I loved their chosen music or not, I have to admire their skills. They were excellent. Here is the audience showing their appreciation with a standing ovation.
