This afternoon Virginia Staats and I attended a chamber music program at the Blanton Museum by the University of Texas Faculty featuring Ensemble. It featured the string students of the Butler School of Music. The presented concertos by Arcangelo Corelli, Johann Sebastian Bach, Georg Phillip Telemann and Georg Friedrich Handel. It was a very beautiful program.
Tonight I went with Val White and Nancy Riley to Bannockburn Baptist Church to hear the vocal group, This Hope. They are originally from Alaska but now live in Atlanta. They travel by bus and often have their families with them, as they did today. They sang some new Christmas music as well as some of their own arrangements of old standards. We enjoyed the program very much.
