I was privileged to attend a superb vocal concert on Sunday, Oct. 14, at the Main Library. Pianist Mark Streder, who has been a music professor at Elmhurst College for 22 years, introduced music from the movies with entertaining background stories and then masterly accompanied the overwhelmingly beautiful singing of Rachel Peterson. Songs from movies such as Casablanca, Breakfast at Tiffany’s, and Guys and Dolls were included. The program ended with “Over the Rainbow.” The love songs made me realize how much I love my husband of over 50 years.

Do yourself a favor and if you have the opportunity see this duo.
