Skylark.  It's not just a song, it's a farm owned by Washington & Lee University and located on the Blue Ridge Parkway, a perfect spot for a wedding, which is why I showed up there yesterday.
We played undercover in case it rained, next to the wedding cake shrouded in mosquito netting like the beds in another university-owned escape, the Wake Forest House on the Grand Canal in Venice.  Johnny Mac, who led a big band in Lynchburg for 20 years, holds the clarinet.

Here's the mother of the bride conscripting the next pinata player.
"What's your connection to this group?" asks Virginia.

The father of the bride plays violin in The Arrowhead Trio.  Johnny Mac's our clarinetist.
