There is a large flat area above Oakville on the Mount Hermon property. On Thursday afternoon we were treated to some musical performances in the open air. The hope was that sunset on the mountain ranges to the north would be visible, but there were clouds. It was quite cold, but there were some contained fires in the back that people could use to warm up a bit.
The opening performer was David Wagner ’63, who was to be a presenter the next day. He played music on his recorder that was reminiscent of the sounds heard back in the hills when he did a lot of hiking nearly 50 years ago. A hauntingly beautiful start to the evening.
The audience enjoyed Harshi’s singing tremendously. At the end of each song, she smiled shyly and cocked her head to the right.
