California dreamin’

As the wind and rain batters my study window, I can’t help but think back to the glorious time I had with The London Quartet in Ventura, CA just a few days ago. We performed in the Community Presbyterian Church which was packed with a very appreciative audience, and were also put through our paces during a Q & A session with the Patrons and VIPs of the festival beforehand. The thing I love most about the TLQ experience is that they make a real effort to interact with the audience at every possible opportunity; before, during and after the show. It was fantastic to have the opportunity to talk to so many interesting people afterwards.

It was also great to meet Nuvi Mehta, the Artistic Director of the Ventura Music Festival and to hear how the festival has expanded, as well as his plans for the future. We are grateful to him and his team for looking after us so well, especially to Rose and the wonderful tech team at the venue. I hope we have the opportunity to visit again!

I leave you with Nuvi Mehta’s TEDx talk from earlier this year:
