A Fabulous Birthday Bash - An Independence Day Celebration Concert!

Music has a way of bringing people together! Listeners came by land and by sea. Thirteen boats were anchored down on Sotterley Creek, as the crews enjoyed the music rolling down hill and field. On land, several hundred visitors set up chairs and blankets for a lovely afternoon of patriotic music, bidding and taking chances on auction items, eating great American foods, and making cool crafts.

Part of the "On Location" SMCM River Concert Series, the Chesapeake Orchestra Brass Quintet was led by Maestro Jeffrey Silberschlag of St. Mary’s College of Maryland. The Chesapeake Orchestra Brass Quintet include: Robert Birch and Carlton Rowe, trumpet; Bryan Bourne, trombone; Mark Questad, French horn; John Cradler, tuba and guest performers Zach Silberschlag and Jeff Silberschlag, trumpet and Nathaniel Silberschlag, French horn. A BIG thanks to all of you for sharing your talents with all of us.

We are also grateful to the St. Mary's Arts Council, who made this event possible again this year. And much thanks to all of the visitors who joined in the celebration - our old friends and so many new friends!
