BFOM is here - Hooray!
Last night was the welcome party for the Bellingham Festival of Music musicians, their host families, patrons, and volunteers. Arvin and I are hosting Larry Knopp, the second trumpet player, so we were there. It was a great party held at the Ferry Terminal in Fairhaven. It was so good to see our old friends again. We talked to many of the musicians who've been coming for years and lots of our buddies from the Festival Chorus and other Bellingham Friends. It's Larry's second year with us and when we got home the three of us stayed up late catching up on the news. The first concert is Friday and we are really looking forward to hearing this great orchestra play again. It's going to be another great festival, the sixteenth and our fifteenth as hosts.
