We were very proud parents this weekend! Our daughter, Kirby, teaches at the St. Louis School of Music. She and her husband boarded an Amtrak train early Saturday morning with 9 students from the school for Chicago. They arrived in time for a dinner at MYA and to listen to our Music at the Fort concert featuring Rose Armbrust. We are equally proud of our MYA daughter, Rose, a graduate of Julliard (B.M. degree), Curtis Institute of Music (Artist Diploma) and Indiana University (M.M. degree). Rose got married and relocated back in the Chicago area and joined our chamber music coaching staff this year. Her prodigious talents were evident in her performance of works by Shostakovich, Bach and Franck.
