Fans Heard Take Me Out 

To Ballgame, With A Twist

Expecting baseball, fans entering and exiting the Hall of Fame a few minutes ago may have been surprised to hear classical music as well. Shortly after 3 p.m., Time for Three – a trio that includes violinist Nicolas (Nick) Kendall, violinist Charles Yang, and double-bassist Ranaan Meyer – performed a 10-minute “flash concert” in advance of their concert at 7:30 that evening in The Otesaga’s Ballroom, sponsored by Cooperstown Summer Music Festival. For tickets, click here.  Standing at left, the Hall’s Shirley Tyler snaps a photo while, at right, Summer Music fest publicists Zach Rhodes of Milford and Sandy Peevers of Cooperstown record the happening.  The trio also did an interpretation of “Take Me Out To The Ballgame” for listening fans.  (Jim Kevlin/AllOTSEGO.com)
