Continuing the Musical Weekend

Today at my temporary church gig, the Austin Girls Chorus performed during the service. They sounded quite good. I then went to the Galveston Chamber Music Society.

I then went to the Galveston Chamber Music Society. It is a group that meets about 4 times a year at different locations to perform music for each other. Most of them are music teachers and some have non music day jobs but still like to perform. So this is their chance to work on a piece a perform it. Today it was at an old house built in the late 1800's. It was a nice house. There were musicians playing pieces for solo piano (Chopin was one of the composers) piano duet (a concerto by J.S. Bach) and a contemporary piece for violin, cello and piano. It was great sitting in an old house with people playing music for each other. It reminds me what is probably was like with composers such at Mozart, Chopin and Les Six. Musicians performing good music for each other. A reception followed the informal concert (more free food). It was a nice musical day.
