Leaves of Gold Concert

Miró Quartet

December’s “Leaves of Gold” Fundraising Concert was perfect in every way.   As guests approached Rosario Resort on Orcas Island, they were greeted with white Christmas lights framing the beautiful historic mansion.  The lobby was filled with a Festival of trees, each uniquely decorated by non-profit organizations.  And then the stars of the evening  -  the magnificent Miró Quartet.  Daniel Ching, William Fedkenheuer, John Largess and Joshua Gindele masterfully performed Beethoven’s Harp String Quartet in E-Flat Major, Op. 74 and Schubert’s String Quartet in G Major, D887.  The world famous and much-loved Quartet played these classics in Rosario’s Music Room, the centerpiece of the mansion featuring Belgian stained glass, a Tiffany chandelier, two mezzanine libraries and a two-story 1913 Aeolian pipe organ.  It was the perfect setting for a magical evening. 

We can’t thank the Miró Quartet enough for coming to Orcas Island in rainy December to perform for our “Leaves of Gold” Fundraising Concert.  It was a very special gift which overwhelmed concert-goers will long remember!
