Ross McKee Foundation Executive Director Nicholas Pavkovic welcomed about 100 people last Friday for a performance by 24 pianists of J.S. Bach's The Well Tempered Clavier, Book 2, which consists of 24 solo keyboard pieces that each have a two-part structure of Prelude and Fugue.
McRoskey Mattress Company showroom on Market Street where we were greeted by Robin Azavedo above, whose family still owns the century old company that donates their loft space for various artistic events. She apologized for the lack of heat in the building on a cold, rainy Friday night, but it was quite bearable and at least the service dog that was plopped down in the front row had a warm vest for comfort. Unfortunately, the dog also had a collar with bell-like rattles enclosed so that when it would stand up for a limbering shake, Bach competed with the tinkle of his noisemakers, and some of us wished for horrible things to happen to his oblivious human companion.
