Joe says:

"I had the concept of having a chamber music festival, and it came from hiring a group called Sonic Escape. And they are going to perform in this festival. I decided to expand this by having two kind of locally based groups first.

"Two well-known groups, because the Onyx Clarinet Quartet was founded by Alan Woy, a long-term clarinet teacher at Crane, and his wife, Roxanne, who taught in the area in Norwood-Norfolk and then was the librarian at the elementary school in Potsdam; they retired and moved to Rochester, and formed this group, and I hired them to come and do a concert with some of their old friends, who were founding members of the Potsdam Brass Quintet.

"It's based on getting people out there who know each other, and then Saturday carrying on with these flash concerts by Sonic Escape. The flash concerts are going to be short programs at the Ives Park in Potsdam, then over to Norwood Village Green, while St. Andrews is letting out its congregation. There is a craft fair on the Village Green that day too, so there is a chance for people to see these people quick and up close.

"Finally, on Sunday, they’re going down to Colton…and we’re going to have an outdoor coffee hour there. Then we are going to do their sound check at 5 o’clock and doing an ice cream social at the Hometown Café, another "flash" thing. They’re going to skate down there—roller-skate—they’re going to skate playing. It’s going to be flute and violin, and they’re going to skate over to the concert."
