Texas is a big state. 4 hours or so got us from Nagocdoches to Austin for a very brief stay. Singing in the Bates Recital Hall at the University of Texas before a very attentive audience was a most rewarding experience. Matt Mazzola’s family came, along with our Board Member Susan Carlyle (who lives in Houston) and her grandson Caldwell to contribute to the very warm reception. No more glacial cold, and on to the heat in San Antonio where our founder Louis Botto was born.
