As those of you who attended know, last night's concert was fantastic. (Thank you, Eve, Marc and Jim!) But I want to praise the attendees. What a wonderful group of people! Cathy and I are always impressed by the great folks who walk in the door for these house concerts. And last night was as good as it gets; everyone was so supportive and helpful. One guest took it on himself to get a balky patio lamp working (he wasn't even sitting by the lamp himself); and everyone cleaned up and stacked chairs as they left (without being asked). I found only one tiny scrap of paper in the yard this morning. Anyway: a pleasure.
We also had a couple of people ask about helping out at future concerts. I'm sorry to say I didn't stop to write down names, so please feel free to remind me if you're still game.
Shout-outs to Chiara Sutton (our teenage stage lighting control wizard) and to Erica Brucia, last night's indoor organizational goddess.
