The First Concert

Despite the threat of rain, 300 to 400 people came to the first concert  to enjoy an evening on the Mansion Lawn.  Among the pieces played by the 15 piece string orchestra Paco DC under the baton of Maestro Simeone Tartaglione were Tchaikovsky's Serenade for Strings, Bach's Brandenburg's Concerto No. 3,  and Vivaldi's "Summer"  from Concerto No. 2.  Alessandra Cuffaro, the well known violin soloist, brought the audience to their feet after her stunning performance of Franco Mannino's Presto from concerto per violino e orchestra No. 2, Opus 447.  The evening ended with a rousing edition of "Fiddle Faddle" by Leroy Anderson complete with enthusiastic audience participation.
