Chamber Music Festival...
Last night I heard a concert of Italian chamber music, sponsored by the Italian embassy. Right now in Ottawa is the International Chamber Music Festival, which is supposed to be the largest of it`s kind in the world. They have over 120 concerts!
Last night's concert was really amazing. The venue was incredibly hot, as there were no fans during the performance (it would reduce the listening experience). There was a soprano and harpsichord performance, a piano solo, cello sonata, and a few other pieces as well. Just as we left the church, we saw the tail end of the firworks across the river at Lac Léamy in Gatineau.
