Winter of Art-in-Progress Party

Even in January, we had to open windows to make the temperature in Anna's apartment tolerable for the record-breaking number of warm artistic bodies that attended (was it 30?  no time to count). So many people brought instruments this year that we decided to have all the musicians perform in a block at the end of the evening to cut down on the logistical difficulties of opening and closing instrument cases in a crowded room.  Prepared musical presentations were immediately followed by a sing along, with numerous able-fingered instrumentalists taking turns leading the crowd, using song sheets that they prepared in advance.
