A fun time was had by all as Mary & Mario hosted a get-together for some of Mario’s students (and their spouses) on Sunday afternoon, January 8th.  Mario’s students arrived, accordions in hand, and each played one of their favorite selections!  Mary prepared appetizers and dinner, paired with delicious wines and scrumptious desserts. The musical segment ended with Mario playing some favorites, and, in celebration of the Epiphany, Mary sang “O Holy Night.”

Good friends, food, wine and music – who could ask for more!
