“Watching the recording of this concert, I have to admit, it was just magical and I’m delighted to present this unusual, whimsical and absolutely delightful program again, albeit virtually. Throughout the concert, several of us made comments about the music and I had forgotten how humorous we were, and the audience was in stitches.” – Ken Hardin, Artistic Director/pianist
