Eroica Trio at Dedication of Studzinski Hall

Erika here, thanks for checking out my very first blog!
I want to share a few pix and experiences about our exciting time at Bowdoin College last week- we had a hair-raising time even getting there! There were huge thunderstorms and somehow Susie made it from Laguardia- but Sara, the cello and I were stranded in Newark Airport.... our flight was canceled-ah, the joys of touring......
Since we were the only artists to perform at the dedication their brand new concert hall, Bowdoin made sure that we made the concert! So they hired a private jet for us- we traveled in style, the red carpet treatment all the way!!!!
We went straight to the hall from the airport, where an enthusiastic audience of faculty and students awaited us....one look at Studzinski Recital Hall and we were in love! It is gorgeous, with rich wood everywhere and Danish Blue upholstery on the seats. It feels like a European hall with the audience seated all around the stage, enveloping us. It was great to meet some of the Bowdoin community! Our only regret is that we didn't have the time to hear some of the music students perform...
After a couple of hours rest, we returned to the hall for the gala opening and dedication ceremonies and we let the fabulous acoustics wash over us as we played....pure indulgence!
Afterwards we went to the reception where we enjoyed a gourmet buffet-apparently Bowdoin College is #1 in food service nationwide!
It was a huge honor for us to be a part of Bowdoin College history in the making- congratulations on "Stud's" Hall, it's a gem!
Thanks again for reading! xo Erika
