An Unusual Request

This past weekend we played on the wonderful St. Croix Concert Series in Stillwater, MN. The concert was at the spectacular Trinity Lutheran Church.

We played the Haydn A Major Trio (a really great one - gorgeous slow movement!), the Ives Trio (incredible - parts sound like Mahler, other parts sound like Ta Ra Ra Boom De Ay), and the Brahms B Major Trio. Brahms B is definitely one of my absolute favorite pieces ever :-)

After the Brahms, this sweet older woman approached me and asked if we play private events. I said sure, sometimes. She said "I'd like you to play at my funeral."
