On Oct. 12, I went to the Fox Theatre for the first Hutchinson concert of the year.

These 65 members of the symphony played a wonderful evening of music. This was special because the musicians were called up on to fill the second half of the program at 5:30 p.m. on the day of the concert because soloist Mat Means was hospitalized. He was to play the violin concerts in D by Tchaikovsky. Our very capable conductor, Dr. Richard Koshgarian, had to come up with the second half of the concert. The musicians responded, playing South American music and Rimsky-Korsakov. It was very good. First half had Amy Brownlee, soprano soloist, singing an aria so brilliantly. The sounds that came from her were truly beautiful.

I’m sorry to say the Fox Theatre did not have a large crowd. My reason for writing this is to tell many people about a truly beautiful evening of music they missed.

After my first piano lessons at age 6, I fell in love with music, and so it remains. Please, please come to the second concert Sunday afternoon on Nov. 19 and help fill Fox Theatre with a big audience. You won’t regret it.
