Complain about development in the Fredericksburg region all you want, but without the tremendous population growth the area has seen over the last couple of decades, we wouldn’t have achieved the critical mass necessary to attract as much talent to the area as we have. Sunday afternoon’s “Viva Vivaldi” concert at the library is a perfect example. Two virtuoso violinists, David Ehrlich (left) and Benedict Goodfriend, played a 90-minute performance for a packed house in the downtown library’s tiny theater. No fancy trappings here, just two renowned professionals playing wonderful music on a bare stage. All free, courtesy of Friends of the Library. Bravo.
