Unbelievable day!

Not to be imagined - you just couldn't!

Personal Highlights: 9:00 am a beautiful world premier of a piece by Kevin Fox, Canadian composer, for harp and steel drum. Super.

Four Seasons harp quartet playing a spectacular arrangement of a Mozart string quartet piece. I was transported.  Alys How and Seumas Gagne in an entire fabulous concert of Cape Breton music. As Elizabeth says "there are harpists here from all over the world, but it is the Canadians who keep hitting it out of the park!"

And then tonight. There are no words to describe Park Stickney and Ruddiger Opperman playing Jimmy Hendrix - followed by 3 of the finest South American harpers to walk the earth. I'm still buzzing!

Nice to see a large contingent from Vancouver Island today - and Island Mountain students from all over the planet. Great fun. Almost made it before it turned to Friday -

    It sounds wonderful Marilyn,
    The 2 older girls have been studying The Four Seasons with Music History. Is it something to consider preparing for the future and is the music available?
    Enjoy your last hours on the mainland,
