|Fireplace in the parlor of The Bruce House, Cumberland, Maryland|
We went to hear Mountainside Baroque's concert, "Lessons and Carols," in Cumberland, Maryland this weekend. The music was superb, and the setting, Emmanuel Episcopal Church in Cumberland was beautiful. We had a very pleasant stay at the Bruce House Inn . Our room was furnished tastefully with antiques, the breakfast was delicious as well as beautifully presented, and the company (the other guests and host, Pam) were so pleasant to be with. It was fun going to the concert and seeing our host and fellow guests there! If you plan to go next year, go a half hour early. The church was packed and it was hard to find a seat ten minutes before the performance.
