 7 AM - 11 AM
Sunday Baroque
Although the saying is, "Two's company, three's a crowd" the number 3 has symbolism ranging from philosophy and religion, to mathematics and physics. There are three primary colors, it's the first odd prime number, and Shakespeare wrote about "three weird sisters," to name just a few. There is also wonderful music written featuring 3 instruments, and three's a charm on Sunday Baroque.
