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.
