‘Geography of Music’ a winner

Published on September 12, 2017 2:50PM

The year-long efforts of Fishtrap, Josephy Center and Wallowa Valley Music Alliance came to fruition Aug. 24-26 as “The Geography of Music.”

The Friday night concert featured amazingly talented musicians from Seattle, Boise, Walla Walla and our own Mark Eubanks and Lauren Guthridge. Sam Collett and Rod Ambroson shared outstanding talent as painters, and Ellen Bishop’s words touched our souls as she described this awesome place we call home.

It was one of the most beautiful awe-inspiring concerts I have ever been privileged to attend.

I am sure that even if you thought you didn’t like classical music, you would have been mesmerized by classical music beautifully presented in concert with breath-taking pictures of the Snake River.

You would have been captivated to watch Collett and Ambroson create fascinating paintings in front of your eyes as you heard the music of Mozart or Stravinsky.

Eubank’s arrange of Bach’s “Little Fugue in G Minor” would have had you feeling ever-so thankful to live in Wallowa County.

I understand the dedicated creative volunteers who spent many hours on “Geography of Music” events are already hard at work on the program theyt plan to present next August.

Please, do yourself a favor, and don’t miss it.
