Last weekend, Matthew asked me if I was up to anything. I told him I wasn’t so he invited me to join him, his wife, and his parents. So, I headed out to his parents’ place in the country. We spent the afternoon swimming in the pool and then went on to Round Top in the evening. We heard the Texas Festival Orchestra perform at the Festival Institute. They played Mozart’s Don Giovanni: Overture, and Concerto in A for Calinet & Orchestra. After the intermission, they played Beethoven’s Symphony No. 5. It was a pleasant surprise to find such a nice concert hall out in the middle of no where. Makes me wonder what other treasures are hiding out in the Texas countryside.
