Where did the day go?

I’m trying to work up the energy to go to a concert tonight. It’s only a couple of blocks away, and this is the program:

– William Averitt’s Afro-American Fragments, based on texts by Langston Hughes.

– Classic spirituals and shape-note tunes, in arrangements by Marylou Jackson, Alice Parker, Brad Holmes.

– Choral works by Undine Smith Moore, Adolphus Hailstork, Ronald Stabeli, Frank Ticheli.

– The world premiere of Appalachian Requiem, by Michael Conley (WVC Musical Director) with chorus, soloists, string quartet, hammered-dulcimer, and piano.

I’d be crazy to miss it, right?? Here’s another picture from the park the other day. This is where I turned off 5th and went into the park.
