Sunday afternoon, somewhere in New Jersey…
The Oakeside Bloomfield Cultural Center just started a concert series called Music At The Mansion. When they asked me to be one of the artists I jumped at the chance. Conceptually it seemed right in line with my House Concert Series. The setting is sure right on the money, the only difference being that it’s not a private home. No matter, I love the environment of performing acoustically in a room in a house.
The acoustics in this room are perfect. Nice balanced reflections in a musical part of the range. Not too boomy or bright, just right. And the colonial renaissance architecture, with appropriate decor, should create a warm environment for people to sit back and enjoy the music. Classy, yet homey.
…They didn’t mind! What fun. The room was full of enthusiastic people, and the show was a success. Each of us did about a half hour, and was just right. Rosemary sounds like a jazz horn with words, Alpher/Litt penned and performed some really good songs, and Ms. Corinna Sowers-Adler was not only a perfect host, but sings like the angels as well.
More as it comes,
