Bach to the Future

After our day of Geocaching, Joanne and I went to see some friends perform in St Michaels, MD. Sarah was singing soprano, and Kevin was the guest conductor.

Upon arrival in St Michaels, we ate at the Town Dock Restaurant. We had a great meal overlooking the Marina in the quaint, historic town. I had the New England Striped Bass - it had a sundried tomato crust and garlic mashed potatoes. Joanne at some tasty grouper dish topped with pesto and accompanied with baby artichokes.

Next, we drove a few blocks to Christ Church St Michaels. This is an extremly beautiful, historic church - very neat. They had a lot of artifacts inside, including a gift from Queen Elizabeth from the 1700's and stuff from many long forgotten churches of convenience. The stained glass was awesome.

Joanne and I sent an hour or so ushering, or handing out programs. I counted about 100 attendees. Then we got to enjoy the choir music. It was awesome - 17 amazing singers, who performed arrangements of poems and the like.

We finished our evening with a trip to Scossa's for desert. Many of the vocalists came to join us.
