We started the winter quarter with country music performed by the Firewater Country Duo. The artists, Will Ramey and Julie Rogelstad, did a great job both performing and explaining country music, as well as their backgrounds. The group sang about twelve different country songs and the audience thoroughly enjoyed the show. Some of the music was written by Will Ramey, but most of the songs were originally performed and written by other country artists. The final song, "Stand By Your Man," was a great way to end another fun Friday Music event.
On Friday, February 2, we heard the Villa Musica Flute Ensemble. The performers included six women and one man. They played a variety of music, specifically arranged for the flute. During the first half of the program they included some Gershwin favorites as well as classical composers. Upon completing the first portion of the program they explained the different types of flutes (alto, bass, and piccolo) and demonstrated the sounds each flute provided. The second half of the program included a very good flute version of "Amazing Grace." We had a nice-sized audience in attendance.
If you never have attended LIVE MUSIC (Friday afternoons), please join us for a relaxing and fun experience.
