Well, mom and dad did not make it on Saturday. Needless to say, I was surpremely disappointed. Their flights were too heavy and they had to get off, then the Blizzard of '08 hit. It was reported that the Morton building could not be seen from the house (maybe 60 yards). But, the show must go on!
So. My WONDERFUL, GLORIOUS, MAGNIFICENT husband came to BOTH concerts, on both Saturday and Sunday to try to help make up for it. I know, he is pretty special, right? And, he brought me a dozen roses on Saturday night (picture women at his table swooning). And, he also took photos of my diva-ness, which I am hoping to post shortly.
All in all, it was a great weekend of music. The audience seemed to really like the program, wine flowed on Saturday night, ice storms flowed on Sunday afternoon, and there were some truly great moments during each concert - a double choir singing Biebl's Ave Maria on Sunday was a highlight (one choir in front, one in back of the church), as well as Poulenc's bad-boy Hodie, Christus Natus Es (it's super cool, Youtube it).
Can't wait for next year!
