Sometimes an unpretentious little chamber orchestra concert is just what the hungry listening ear needs. Such a pleasant occasion was the Palo Alto Philharmonic’s program on Saturday, Dec. 11, under music director Lara Webber.
The concert was held at the First Lutheran Church, a tiny edifice in Old Town Palo Alto. No more than 40 patrons attended this concert. The church could not have held more than about twice that, even if tightly packed. The walls are stucco and the ceiling and floor wooden, rendering it acoustically very bright.
