Last night was the final concert in the Chamber Music Series for this school year at the Sant Bani School in Sanbornton. I've enjoyed them for years now, and I always wonder to myself, "Some of the best music being played on this planet tonight is being played here, at this small school at the end of a dirt road in Sanbornton, NH". I thought that again last night, listening to Dvorak pieces played by the Tempest Trio, who have performed at many of the world's top concert venues. The audience is always enthusiastic, often expressing the same wonder as we chat — isn't this amazing?
I also thought, why not say to anyone who doesn't know about these concerts, "If you enjoy fine music, come to Sant Bani and see what's here." The atmosphere is congenial, the musicians are wonderful, the intermission refreshments by the parents are excellent, it's all amazing and it's here.
I realize this is the end for this year, and the schedule for next year's series isn't formally announced yet, but the school website will have it in time. And I do know that the first concert is expected to be at the beginning of October. I really urge readers to take a look for themselves.
