Music Feeds Us ... on Vivace!

This morning, it was a great pleasure to welcome the string quartet from Music Feeds Us to the studio for a live concert during the final hour of Vivace. These fine young people, led by Avery Waite (cello) and Fitz Gary (viola), are playing to support the Blue Ridge Area Food Bank, which serves more than 120,000 people each month. In 2012, they distributed more than 17 million meals to hungry families across the Blue Ridge - made up of some 145,600 different people - through a far-reaching network of food pantries, soup kitchens, schools, churches and non-profit groups.  They deserve your support!

Avery and Fitz were joined by Dorothy Ro and Audrey Wright (violins).  You can catch the whole show at WTJU's Tape Vault. Here's a photo of Avery Waite (left) and Fitz Gary (right) as they were performing live in the studio:

This special edition of "Vivace" is available in the WTJU Tape Vault through June 28. 2013. You can access and replay the program anytime during that period for free.
