Alterra Garden Party Concert

Friday, July 22nd, 2005

The Fabulous HeftonesBrian and I played to a receptive crowd at Alterra’s in Haslett, this Thursday. It was a wonderful place for us to play, and we had a great time.

Alterra’s is a retirement community, a small and intimate one next to some of the others in town. The staff really seems to have it together and really enjoy the residents there.

I thought it was great to hear two of the residents talking after the concert, about their cats. I think it is wonderful folks can have a small pet at a place such as this. So often people have to give up their comfort and their lifestyle when they move out of their homes. I was impressed.

Alterra’s opened up the garden party (which ended up inside because of hot weather and threat of thunderstorms) to the local public. I saw twelve folks I knew, who came in to see the concert. My mom and her faithful friend, Fai, were there. Most of the others I knew were students in my Haslett community ed computer classes. Helen, the woman who made the bedspread in yesterday’s post, was there with a friend who happened to be a student of mine at Foster Center. And it turns out Helen’s friend/my student also knew my mother. Sometimes the Lansing community is such a small town!!! At least it seems so when I go to arts events.

Here’s a photo of Brian and I at Alterra’s, taken by our friend Hanno. Thanks for the photo, Hanno!
