I know some nice people. Including the ones who called me Thursday to offer me their tickets to last night’s performance of the Colorado Symphony Orchestra. And the friend who accepted my last-minute invitation to go with me.
Dinner beforehand was good. It was a lovely spring evening to be out and about. Downtown was bustling but not frantically crowded
Inside Boettcher Hall, our seats were primo. The program was Johann Sebastian Bach and Vivaldi; there’s nothing like baroque music to clean the cobwebs and clutter out of my brain for a few hours, and this program was a joy.
I could get a crush on Scott Yoo, the guest conductor and violinist. Who just about rocked the house with Vivaldi’s The Four Seasons. The podium was removed during intermission, and he fiddled away right on the same level as the musicians he was conducting. Vigorously, intensely, totally.
Thanks, everybody. That was fun!
