Last Thursday was a most joyful experience for our ACP Outreach Quartet! We are Adelaide Federici, violin and 8 months pregnant, Charae Krueger, cello, Ann Marie McPhail, soprano, and yours truly on piano. We headed to the Benson Senior Center, one of Fulton County's impressive senior multi-purpose facilities, in Sandy Springs. From "O mio babbino caro" and Mozart Divertimento in Bb to "The Swan" and "The Sound of Music," this was a varied celebration of intimate songs, instrumental solos and trios. Our enthusiastic audience of about 75 were so gracious and seemed to really enjoy our gift of music. Big thanks to the Fulton County Arts Commission for helping support this memorable free performance for some very grateful seniors. We certainly enjoyed ourselves, too!
