Number of recorders heard … impossible to tell! But bright red recorders were handed out to kids before the concert and I wish I could have recorded the recorders for you. It was cute! (They were pretty quiet when we played, which was surprising.)

Guess who sponsored our concert? (Along with the Mercury News and KDFC) And guess who conducted the Rossini? :-)
