Classical music aficionados had a great week of concerts last weeks with the Centric Music Festival.

 The only concert I caught featured some of the performers performing throughout the week, tickling the ivories on grand piano set up in the Galt Gardens pergola, Friday, June 26.

I caught the end of Theresa Thordarson’s beautiful performance of  Mozart’s  Sonata No. 8 in A Minor as Artistic Director Jesse Plessis turned the pages for her.

 Tasha Toney, in a big sun hat shielding her from the sweltering sun, didn’t need any music as she performed Sergei Prokofiev  Sonata No. 1 in F Minor Op. 1.

 I had to stick around for one more as Mexican pianist Luis Ramirez tackled a gorgeous performance of Chopin’s  Ballad No. 4 in F Minor Op. 52.
