This week, Sunday through Friday, we will be in the most varied possible  selection of places to perform six Christmas concerts and tape for Hallmark TV's Home and Family.  On Sunday we performed for the first time ever at First Presbyterian Church in Berkeley.  Our faithful Berkeley audience followed us ( only across the street) from First Congregational Church, our longtime Berkeley home, sadly damaged in a fire last fall.  First Pres. is a newish (60's) church with a wide floor plan which drew the audience closer to us.  We all adjusted well to the unfamiliar space, and had a great Berkeley time with that very attentive audience.  The following day we rose early to catch a plane for San Diego and our first Christmas performance at Copley Symphony Hall, presented by the San Diego Symphony.   Tuesday - up to Los Angeles for our traditional concert in LA Phil's Deck the Halls series.  We would then have gone straight home on Wednesday but have accepted to tape Home and Family for broadcast on Thursday and Friday.   We'll still arrive home, though later, on Wednesday to be ready for two performances at the Mission Santa Clara on Thursday.
