Highstrung in Print (II)

Eric was handed a clipping from The Dalles Chronicle. There we are on page A2:



The article is about the Columbia Gorge Sinfonietta. We played with them over the weekend and had a great time. Ruth Hall and Music Director Mark Steighner have always been encouraging and accommodating. This concert, Highstrung was featured as guest artists. We played the fourth and second movements of the Haydn as well as an arrangement of “O Come, O Come Emanuel” and a jazz rendition of “Santa Claus is Coming to Town.” Every audience loves the jazz tunes. It was great to hear their response.

No E in Claus........ ;)

I apologize, it seems I can't read anything anymore without the editor in me kicking into gear. Not even my biology book.....

Don't feel bad. I would sit in church and correct our bulletin. This last semester, I read through my professors notes with a red pen. I discovered that I focus better when I'm reading critically.

Well no picture and not as big but the Concert at Foothills did make the front page of the "Voice of the Valley".

Also I wish I could say I though of sending in a request for the ad but someone from the paper must have seen a sign and included it.
