Back to Wednesday night’s music…

Dinner was another concerto of left-overs by the home-ec major, Miss Donna. When she gets going in that kitchen, it’s “Katie bar the door”.  Delicious and very attractive last night…thanks again.

The Youth Orchestra was featured at the Amphitheater.  These kids from all over the world spend 7 weeks here on scholarships.

Probably 3-4,000 people showed up for them.  Interesting array of music…first 15 minutes were the percussion people all over the place.

These folks are not usually featured for 10 minutes…and, at the top of the show.  They had our toes tapping.

Then, brass players were placed at the top of the Amp all around the place…real stereo.

Then, a bit of opera; some classical and closed with a bit of Broadway’s Brigadoon.

Came back to view some Olympics; then John & Chip tried to spy some of the Perseid Meteors from a dock on the Lake nearby.  We saw some Otter scat on the docks, but not much action in the sky.  Clouds predominated and the really big show is on Thursday night into Friday early morning…the moon sets at 1AM.  As many as 200 meteors per hour…so stay up whenever you are.

Here’s the sunset from our walk back last night…this is the former stable where the art studios are located.  This is now a “pano” shot from the iPhone 6s.
