Last Sunday I joined close friends to attend a concert produced by Hayden's Ferry Chamber Music Series. We had only recently heard of this musical organization and attended this performance on the recommendation of an acquaintance. By the end, we were wishing we had heard about it long before.
It was held at the Tempe Center for the Arts in Tempe and in the Art Gallery at that facility. The performance we saw was called the Trio Combray with Gregory Fulkerson on violin, Jeffrey Solow on cello and Jeffrey Swann on piano. They played pieces by Shumann, Beethoven and Brahms.
The setting was what I'd call intimate with only a small gathering of people in the audience. We sat listening to some truly beautiful music surrounded by some fascinating art work from the gallery's current exhibition. There is only one more performance in this season's series and we've already decided to attend it and take more friends along with us. I'll certainly be looking for next season's schedule when it becomes available. It's always wonderful to find new and wider artistic enjoyments.
Tomorrow I'll show you some of the intriguing art that was featured in the exhibit in the gallery.
