Astraios was pleased to test out a new venue, Expedition Frisco, on January 14.

Jeremy Reynolds flew down from Denver and joined Ruth Ann Ritchie and Michael Jones for a program of music by French composers. We traced the French style from the Baroque through the 20th century and, with the help of Expedition Frisco's new projection system, were able to display French art on the wall behind the performers.

Despite a dreary and foggy evening, we had a great crowd who responded enthusiastically to the new venue. Be watching our Facebook page for video clips coming soon!

The week after the concert, Ruth Ann, Michael, Christopher Curtis, and Patrick Herring performed at three Frisco ISD schools. We brought our program on "Ways We Use Music" to over 350 young students at Smith, Ashley, and Corbell Elementary Schools.
