Christmas house concert 2015

Another wonderful evening with Nathan George, Mark Stoffel, and Henry Haffner. We had about 60 guests. Thank you to all for attending!

My sister Margaret and her husband John and three of their grandchildren came about three hours early and provided those extra helping hands that are needed at the last minute! Our grateful thanks to them! My sister Genny arrived shortly before the concert but stayed late cleaning the kitchen along with DH. She stayed overnight and left early to visit other family members on the way home. I wish I had pictures of them helping, but, as usual, we didn’t get as many pictures as we should have.

The musicians arrived about 6:30 and began warming up. Such a delight to hear them again! Music began around 7:30.

After a full evening, guests were gone by 10:00. Then we got another treat. Mark picked up Henry’s violin. Henry picked up Nathan’s guitar and Nathan picked up Mark’s mandolin. Then they played for fifteen or twenty minutes. So fun!
