Fort Monroe (3/16/2014)
I tend not to show pictures of people that can be recognized by someone, but on Sunday we went to a great concert at Fort Monroe. It was by the Hampton Roads Philharmonic. This is an orchestra that was started in 2013 and they played remarkably well. It was a very enjoyable afternoon with music from Mendelssohn, Ravel, Sibelius, and Mozart. This is a picture of some of the cello players and the big base. Absolutely worth going to listen to when they come to your area.
Fort Monroe used to be an Army base that was handed over to the community. Hopefully they will be providing more concerts and events for the community. Last time I was there was to see the tall ships coming in.
