The Dirt: Behind the Scenes at Landis, Fall 2018

By Wendy Kass

The last per­for­mance of this year’s Full Moon Con­cert series at Lan­dis has come and gone. As always, Jim and I were sad to see the sea­son end. And, as always, it was an excep­tion­al year of musi­cal offer­ings that Jim Miller puts togeth­er for our enjoyment. 

I have one con­cert clear­ly etched in my mind. It was an evening of gyp­sy jazz — think Woody Allen’s Mid­night in Paris” sound track. The entire evening was enchant­i­ng. The Straw­ber­ry Moon came up very red. There was mag­ic all around . Peo­ple gath­ered at a beau­ti­ful place to share music and mag­ic: sum­mer breezes, the glow of light­ning bugs, the sounds of peep­ers, a full moon, twin­kling stars – just like I remem­bered as a child. All of which made mem­o­ries for the future.

If you missed this year’s series, there is always next year. The Lan­dis 2018 – 2019 Cal­en­dar of Events will be avail­able in ear­ly spring.
