To keep track of our schedule we maintain a web-based calendar. A day after returning from a three-week trip to New Zealand (one of those flights that is so long you loose track of even what day it is), Ellen pointed out that we had a National Symphony Concert that evening. A further examination of the calendar revealed a plethora of events scheduled for the month of March–24 in fact.
-National Symphony – 2 concerts plus an open rehearsal.
-Baltimore Symphony – 2 concerts.
-University of Maryland – 2 concerts.
-A recital by Dwan Upshaw at the University of Maryland.
-Our Land Trust – Board meeting and Annual meeting.
-Chamber music concert at the Phillips Art Gallery.
-Chamber music concert by the 21st Century Consort.
-A lecture by Ian Ross–author of the book ‘The rest is noise’.
-A cheese and wine tasting featuring organic wines.
-A retirement party for our Pilates instructor.
-The Kennedy Center ‘Shift Festival’. Concerts by four regional orchestras: Bolder Symphony, North Carolina Symphony, Atlanta Symphony and the Knights, a small ensemble from New York.
-The premiere of a documentary film about the composer Samuel Barber.
-5 Films that were a part of the Environmental Film Festival in DC.
Spring is here. Ellen has greens in the garden, our cherry tree put on a nice show and the red bud trees in the neighborhood are at their peak. Unfortunately, our magnolia blossoms were hit by a frost but a few survived.
