Now here is a chance to write about my quartet. A soprano, an alto, a flute, accompanied by me on the piano. The soprano is the one that chooses most of the music because she is a also a community chorus director. The alto likes religious music better than pop songs. The flute player likes music where she gets to shine. I like being in the background, but I choose my favorites on whether the introduction is well written. We perform for senior residences and women’s clubs. Sometimes we notice an older lady wince when the flute hits a high note.
Do people like us? Well, the volunteer directors always invite us back. But the biggest applause we ever got was one day when the alto brought her 4th grade son along and had him play a solo on his trombone.
