Well, Barbara Roth-Donaldson has done it again...another interesting morning of music at the Sarasota Music Club meeting in Sunnyside Village. This one was at the hands of Bob Constantino on piano and the voice of Lyn Purmort, in their slick selection of songs "From Broadway to Hollywood." They are billed as "Just Friends," and very good friends they must be, from the well-worked-out stylings they shared with the very receptive audience.

The Singing Tree Duo at the Sarasota Music Club

Having heard the Singing Tree duo before, I was already expecting a very skilled and artistic performance; I was not disappointed. Ray Belanger on hammered dulcimer and Lloyd Goldstein on double bass are each masters of the technical aspects of their instruments.

Like two people in a good marriage, they can finish each others' sentences.

Superb Piano Performance by Genevieve Beauchamp

The Sarasota Music Club always has interesting programs, along with really nice coffee and sugary things to ruin my diet. Last Friday it was cinnamon rolls, made by hand in the Sunnyside Village kitchen - mmm, good! I actually never learned to like coffee, though I do like the smell. (When I was a kid, my favorite aisle in our old A&P was where the coffee grinders were...what, you, too?)
