Post concert signing with Dr. Robert Tate, Vice President of External Relations

We've just returned from Florida Southern College in very pretty Lakeland, FL, and enjoyed the our visit so much. The John Branscomb Memorial Auditorium is truly a gem and felt wonderful to play in, so warm and resonant. It was great to meet some of the College students, as well as longtime patrons of the FSC Fine Arts series. Thank you, Lakeland, for a terrific time!

Erika here,
Just want to add that I was lucky enough to get a private tour of the campus by FSC’s own Dr. Robert Tate- I was blown away by the jaw-dropping beauty of the buildings designed and built by Frank Lloyd Wright. I even got to play on the organ in one of the gorgeous chapels! I was so inspired I had images of some of his geometric shapes darting in and out of my conciousness during the concert- it must be an amazing experience to be surrounded by those structures every day.

Off to Washington state, bye for now!!
