Chamber music comes to Mint Hill

Tickets are still available for the chamber music concert 4-6 pm Sunday at the home of Susan Griffith in Mint Hill. The concert is sponsored by Chamber Music at St. Peter’s. From the Web site:

These intimate private home concerts honor the origins of chamber music. Set in the private homes of generous individuals throughout Charlotte and the surrounding region, these concerts are the perfect opportunity to see every movement of the musicians as they play their instruments. After the performance, meet other classic music enthusiasts, while enjoying hors d’oeurves.

Not sure what chamber music sounds like? Here’s a trio doing Rachmaninov piano trio Elégiaque No.1 in g minor. The trio Sunday will perform Rachmaninov Elégiaque No. 2 in D minor.

I spoke with town hall today and they said to remember that all leaves you want picked up must be in bags. No more than 10 bags of leaves or any other yard debris will be picked up per week per household.

Madness one week later

In this Thursday’s Mint Hill Times, watch for Adam Houston’s report on how the rain affected last weekend’s Mint Hill Madness. Attendance was down, Fairview Park got a little muddy, and the parade didn’t have all its floats. That didn’t stop everyone from having a good time, however. Here’s the band Volatile Baby who played Saturday at 12:30. Video by Tim Long, The Mint Hill Times.
