So last night I went to a string quartet with my mom. What an experience that was!!! The quartet was made up of 3 girls and 1 guy who were all graduate students at the near by (pretty much next door) University of Akron. The amazing talent cannot be put into words to do them justice!
They did a Haydn piece that had 4 movements followed by a brief intermission. Then they did a couple of pieces that were familiar (I think one was the Vivaldi Spring movement,) and of course a couple of holiday songs thrown in for good measure!
As beautiful as the music was, the venue was just as grand! The Hower House is a lovely old mansion in Akron that was completed in 1871. It is unique in that it is filled with the beautiful antiques that the owners collected themselves from around the world! We can’t wait to go back as we didn’t even make it off the main floor!!
I left my phone at home to charge, so I didn’t get any pictures, but I’ll be sure to get some next time!
