I had a wonderful Friday evening filled with music. First, I attended a fundraiser at the Hartland Elementary School. Local singer/song writer Jay Nash performed a benefit concert the help renovate the school's all purpose room for more music and theater productions.
Nash was joined by pretty much the whole student body for the show's grand finale.
Then I popped over to Damon Hall for an evening of music composed for four hand piano led by Daniel Weiser of "Classicopia." Weiser was accompanied by Philip Liston-Kraft.
