Saturday - Cafe a gogo

Saturday afternoon found me at Cafe a Propos in the sweltering heat. I nursed an ice cappucino in an effort to cool down. We were packed in with air still and humid, but it didn't matter as we passed a lovely afternoon. I have heard Bach's Coffee Cantata a few times before (each Montreal Baroque Festival) but not in this venue. This time it was preceded by Bernier's Coffee Cantata, another lovely piece. Musically satisfying (some lovely flute solos by Mika Putterman) and humorous it was thoroughly enjoyable. I smile as I write this. Thank you Michiel Schrey, Suzie LeBlanc and Nathaniel Watson. Laughter brightens our lives.
