Orchestra, and the Vuillaume String Quartet.
In July 2007,
the Vuillaume String Quartet participated in the
Florida International Festival.
Robert and cellist Hillary Jones gave a private concert in the home
of Audrey Roseborough—104 years young—that
included a portion of The Seasons
by Peter Ilyich Tchaikovsky. Audrey was one of four home-bound Floridians
who had been nominated to host an in-home recital as part of the festival’s
effort to reach out to people who could not for whatever physical reason attend
the festival itself.
The next day,
24th July, the Vuillaume String
Quartet performed “Create a Concert” at Our Lady of Lourdes
church in Daytona Beach. The format of CAC was to have the
audience pick which pieces to be played, as selected by the musicians
before the concert. Each
musician had to try to convince the audience that his/her piece should be
performed in its entirety.
Then, the audience voted, hence creating the concert.
March 2009, Hillary and Robert paid a visit to the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute
in Boston, Massachusetts. This was part of the Musicians on
Call sponsored by Takeda Pharmaceutical Co. Ltd., a community outreach program
designed to bring music to hospitals, community centers, and schools.
