We heard Gershwin, John Williams, Tchaikovsky, Mackey and many more. We didn't last through all the numbers, but were able to drink in about 2/3rd of the evening together before sleep demanded its dues. N thrilled at seeing all the instruments. His favorites were the trombones and french horns. We sat in the balcony so he could dance & sing while causing the least disturbance.
The best thing? It was free! I highly recommend checking with the music department at the college or university near you. See if they offer any concerts for the public. We had a wonderful time together. Hopefully this becomes an annual treat.
|That would be lotion in his hair. The one danger of bathing before the symphony. The grimace is the new smile.|
|Though N was truly excited, our attempts at a real smile failed even when vertically oriented.|
|Finally! A real-ish smile! It took a lot of work to get a non-squinty grin out of this kid.|
