I'd like to commend the Friends of Music and Shepherd University for the excellent Holiday Gala that we attended on Saturday evening. The staging was great, very professional and well thought out; it was amazing to have so many musicians moving from place to place on stage and doing it so quietly. And the combination of lovely vocal music of all types, the great rhythms of the jazz ensemble and the wonderful wind ensemble made for a memorable evening. Their professionalism and the joy and verve
they put into the music were a delight.
When I think that many of these musicians probably marched in Shepherdstown's parade in the morning, at the game in the afternoon and still had the energy to give such a vibrant performance in the evening I am amazed. Thanks for a great evening of entertainment.
