When the Blue Note Bistro opened earlier this year, we never could have predicted what a great community resource it would turn out to be. Its latest use – a Chamber Music program featuring musicians from Asbury’s campus and the surrounding area. Originally created as a summer series, the events were so popular that they have been extended.
Organized by viola player and Asbury Methodist Village resident Howard Hallman, the concerts are packing the house on Wednesday afternoons, bringing in people of all ages. (Notice the stroller in the photos below! Photos by Joon Kim.)
The August 12 concert highlighted two of the campus’s talented pianists, Jean Lauderdale and Alma Rhodes, who performed pieces from such composers as Bach, Debussy, Chopin and Haydn.
