What a Fabulous Sunday Afternoon Concert!

Our Sunday afternoon concerts are often highly attended, as was the case for the recent appearance of Richard Miller, Brazilian guitarist.  Mr. Miller brought his seven-string guitar to Collington to the delight of a full auditorium of Collingtonians.

Born and raised in Rio de Janeiro of an American father and Brazilian mother, Mr. Miller is currently a faculty member of Columbia University and performs with frequency in DC and NY.  His repertoire includes classical guitar and Afro/Latin/Jazz compositions as well as Brazilian ragtime, samba, boss nova music and Bach!

If you missed seeing him play here, go to his website http://richardmillerguitar.com for his performance schedule.  See him in DC, you won’t be disappointed.  He will also be fundraising for his first CD due later in 2017.

As always, many thanks to Carol Kempske who arranges for the appearance of our Sunday afternoon artists.

Here are a few of the many attendees at the Collington Foundation extravaganza on May 19. The photographer apologizes profusely to all whose pictures were either not taken, or for whom the photo did not come out good enough to share.

Congratulations to the Foundation organizers and board for putting on such a successful and enjoyable evening. And thanks to the artists whose work allowed the Foundation to add over $4000 to its scholarship fund.
