Symphony warmup
Originally uploaded by Strumpet101

This afternoon, I took the oldest to the Colorado Symphony matinee performance of Sibelius and Grieg’s piano concerto. Wow! It was absolutely amazing! Truly wonderful. Of course I’m biased, because I love Grieg, but trust me, it was awesome.

The thing is, I was sort of grumpy about having to go earlier. I bought the tickets months ago. I do this. I buy tickets months in advance thinking this is the kind of thing we really should do more of. Then, as the time was approaching, I was thinking: awww … I’d like to just hang at home on a Sunday afternoon.

I didn’t grump out loud though – and I went – and I was transported. It was wonderful and magical, and I’m thinking, once again, that it’s the kind of thing we should do more often!

And I think the oldest liked it too!
