Concert #3

Don's orchestra is currently playing "A Soldier's Tale" (Stravinsky), and I went to see them play the night before last. The concert was in a modern art museum in a small town about an hour and a half away. The piece is narrated, telling the story of a soldier returning home from war who meets the devil and is swindled out of his violin. The musicians did an excellent job, as did the narrator, a very well-known Danish opera singer. (But the trombone playing was the best.)

I love that piece! I bet Don kicked butt.

He DID!!! He kicked butt right across the street and back! With his slide! But seriously...when does this guy NOT kick butt, I ask you?
