It was an excellent concert of modern American music, especially the masterful interpretation of the Concord Sonata. I enjoyed the readings too.

The presentation and discussions were excellent in presenting the multitude of problems in the countries with extreme poverty. Gaston is a superb venue with one exception. The chairs are not "friendly" to anyone with lumbar and/or lower extremity problems with disabilities. Next conference in the Gaston will require a lumbar arch support.
