DREM COUNTERPOINT: THE SANDBURGS IN LOVE
In celebration of Carl and Lilian Sandburg’s 59-year love story, The Friends of Carl Sandburg are hosting a special Four Seasons Chamber Orchestra concert of love in homage to Lilian. Through a grant from the Arts County of Henderson County to The Friends of Carl Sandburg at Connemara, the concert will be held Sunday, May 21, 2023, 3pm at Grace Lutheran Church, 1245 6th Ave West, Hendersonville, NC. Conductor Eric Scheider will present the program, “Dream Counterpoint: The Sandburgs in Love” to include music from J.S. Bach’s Cantata #208 (“Live, Sun of the Earth,” “Sheep May Safely Graze,” “Loveliest Glances”); Florence Price’s Folksongs in Counterpoint (“Oh My Darlin’ Clementine,” “Drink to Me with Thine Own Eyes,” “Shortnin’ Bread”), and Richard Wagner’s Siegfried Idyll. The concert free with donations welcomed at the door.
TAKE A HIKE. SAVIOR THE VIEW.
While the bridge at the front lake remains closed, consider taking a 1-mile hike to the top of Big Glassy Mountain. Along the way you will pass several benches and most likely a few dogs and other hikers. At the top are benches and boulders for resting and taking in the panoramic view of Blue Ridge Mountains. By parking at the “Hikers Lot” (pass the front entry and just around the bend on Little River Road) you’ll have easy access into the park and up to the barn. From there, a short path leads to the woods and trail heads. Enjoy!
