I want to express my deep gratitude to Mae Sherwood for the wonderful concert of January 31 at the Gorge Hall.
The Borealis String Quartet was probably the best group I have heard in the island. Their rendition of the Adagio of Beethoven’s piece was magnificent. And the encore piece, a little song from Thailand, I think with the title Heartbroken Flower, was the most beautiful, moving piece I have heard in many, many years. It simply brought tears to my eyes.
The four musicians of the group, Patricia, Yuel, Nikita and Shih-Lin, were at their best, their love and passion for their music, and their proficiency of their instruments is unreal.
Thanks again Mae for your endurance for bringing these wonderful groups to our little community. Without a doubt, you are the keystone for our island’s culture
A big BRAVO to them and to you !
