A Little Night Music

Last night about 40 friends gathered at the home of our friends Hugette and Mario Moran for an evening of wonderful comradery, entertainment  and great food cooked by Mario.    We were treated to a wonderful musical concert in their home by their son Andre Moran and his wife and singer partner Noelle Hampton.

   Mario makes the best caponata in the whole world and his roasted peppers are to die for.  Besides being a talented chef, he is a well respected Doctor of Medicine, professor,writer,  sculptor   and an all around truly multifaceted individual.  I met Mario in my italian language class.  The picture above shows Mario with many of our italian loving friends and fellow italian language classmates. 

Here are Mario and his lovely wife Hugette  with their  talented son Andre,their daughter in law Noelle (Noelle and Andre's group is called The Belle Sounds).    We really enjoyed a lovely nights concert in their home. What a treat!  

The gift of a delightful summer evening in good company with great music.

Here's Johnny and Marion (she's my italian soul sister)

That's Gabe and Isa (she's also one of my lovely  italian language classmates)

Mike and I had such a nice time with all the friends. A great summer evening.

Lots of time to chat with Andre and Noelle who are based in Austin Texas but have just finished a tour up the coast in California.

Everything is set up so nicely for this evenings special performance.
After the first set there was a break for desserts and then we were able to hear more wonderful songs from their upcoming CD
