Our Houston Family

We were welcomed with open arms and countless hugs when we came to play our 10th performance for our beloved Houston Friends of Chamber Music Series- we all feel so honored to be chosen for their Golden Anniversary!

We adore our Houston "family" and it is always so inspiring to play in The Shepherd School of Music's gorgeous Stude Concert Hall ( Susie is pictured listening to balances).

I always request the famous Steinway that none other than Horowitz himself played!

Sara started it all off by giving an interview for KUHF fm...

...then a rehearsal before the audience arrives...

...then of course, what we all so look forward to- the legendary, beyond fabulous party after- this year at our dear friends', Philip and Joan Cowdin. Here's to another amazing 50 years! Congratulations HFCM!

Island fun

Sometimes touring has it's perks! We were lucky enough to start our tour with a stop in the British Virgin Islands to perform on the Performing Arts Series at H. Lavity Stoutt Community College- Sara and I were there early and got to enjoy the gorgeous beaches...we also were lucky enough to meet up with new friends Thorpe and Andrew who were there for the Spring Regatta- we had a blast sailing to Norman Island and enjoyed a stop at famous Willy T's- Sara was even Captain for some of the trip-
