It was a full house for Saturday, April 16th performance in the Café at Arcosanti. Guest gathered to experience the music of Bach and Mendelsson as interpreted by The Fine Arts String Ensemble. Heading this project is longtime Arcosanti performer and pianist Lynne Haeseler who is the project’s Art Director. The orchestra consisted of several, mostly women, veteran performers and students from Coronado High School.[photos by Chihiro Saito, text by Hildemar Cruz]
In true Chautauqua spirit, the evening began with an exquisite introduction by Jeff Stein who activated the enlightening performance/discussion: face-to-face interchange of culture. This evening was just a reminder of the wide range of interests and culture that can be experienced in this high desert arcology.
