Oliv told us that her classmate Ariel was performing today, so after lunch we picked up their classmate Mary and drove to First Congregational Church to attend a Sunday afternoon concert of The Monday Musical Club. Ariel Hellwitz played three pieces on the flute, accompanied on the guitar by her father Frederic J. Hellwitz. Fred also played two solo guitar pieces. The program started with a soprano and ended with another soprano. We were all happy to hear Ariel play well. To me the highlight of the program was Fred’s playing of Recuerdos de la Alhambra by Francisco Tárrega (1852–1909).

I am happy to mention that coming back from Saratoga Springs last night we enjoyed the CD Give Up the Ghost by Mary's father Jim Gaudet.
