Marrowstone Music Festival 2013 Music in My Garden

For the last two years I’ve hosted in my garden musicians from the Marrowstone Music camp. What a great experience it has been. The students come from all over the country and learn from leading professional musicians in a two week intensive performance and study session.
 The students are wonderful musicians. They are also kind and so polite it’s truly a pleasure to host them.

This year I thought it would be fun to add a few musical details in honor of how hard they work.

I decided to use all white hydrangeas and white table cloths (to represent the paper music is written on) and then I added notes cut from black paper to the bouquets.

Other details were in the cookies I made fudge shaped as whole notes and cookies shaped as different notes and then I placed them on paper with five lines across it so it would look like a musical score.

                   On iced sugar cookies I used food coloring pens and drew musical notes on them.

I set the tables with tea cut and plates. Then wait for my guests to arrive.

Music in the Garden
The weather was perfect warm and a little cloudy the fragrance of flowers accented the atmosphere.

The house and yard filled with young musicians bring with them the excitement of a performance.


Guests were seated everywhere on the porch and in the garden.  I even ran out of chairs so I threw blankets on the ground.

Beautiful music began to fill the air as musicians began to stroll through the garden. Then each subsequent performance was placed in a different area and enhanced the one before it.

              Cookies filled the plates and smiles were found on every face making for a great memory.
