I'm always saying, I wish I had one more week.

On Sunday, I attended a concert by the Manhattan Piano Trio. Their first piece was a fantastic dance of the piano, violin and cello in three movements.* Fingers flew, bows dipped and butterfly notes swirled in the afternoon light of the stained glass. My friend who had booked them called them just three weeks earlier to ask if they knew this wonderful piece she had just heard on public radio. They didn't; but they learned it. I thought, "That's how you do it! You don't say, I don't know how or there's not enough time -- you just do it!"

Manhattan Piano Trio --
*Beethoven - Trio No 4 in B flat major, Op. 11 (Allegro Con Brio, Adagio, Tema: Pria Ch'io Pipegno)

Concerts with a Cause are sponsored by St. John United Methodist Church with donations to various local charities -- this month to Salvation Army. They were begun when the new Dobson organ was installed three years ago. Pictures of the organ and a concert schedule are here:
