Storm couldn't stop the music

March 5, 2014 

In spite of a potential storm Saturday night, Lindenwood University was filled with music lovers hoping for an enjoyable classical pops concert -- and we got it.

The variety of music played was designed to be appreciated by everyone. The soloists Philip Tinge, violin, and Courtney King, flute, were outstanding, and Susan Friesen, on typewriter, was delightful. (Who knew typewriters could be tuned?) In addition, The Four Voices were not only very good but very funny, and for those of us who remember The Four Freshmen, they were especially entertaining.

And it was so nice to see violinist Erna Meyer recognized for her 60 years -- wow -- with the ensemble.

Maestro Robert Howard, musical director and conductor of the Belleville Philharmonic Orchestra, outdid himself planning this concert, and all of us attending congratulate him and the orchestra members for a wonderful musical evening. I can't wait for their next concert on March 30.
