This week’s concert was followed by a Happy Hour hosted by Fanfare, Rush Hour’s auxiliary board of young professionals, in the adjacent St. James Cafe. The event was an opportunity for concertgoers to network with other young professionals and connect with Fifth House Ensemble artists over refreshments.
