I forgot to mention, I was at the symphony twice this weekend.

Friday was Brahms 3, Wagner's prelude to Tristan and Isolde, then a stunning performance of Schoenberg's Erwartung. It was incredible. A brilliant performance by Karita Matilla and the symphony both. Unfortunately, Brent was not as captivated as I was. I found it enthralling.

Then for a change of pace, I went to the Sunday matinee with Robin and Jim. It was "Simply Sinatra" and had a singer with a Sinatra-esque voice along with the symphony + a bunch of band players for the big band feel. It was a lot of fun. The most entertaining part was as we were leaving when I overheard a conversation between two women behind me.
Lady 1: "Well, next time we'll know to read the fine print."
Lady 2: "I know! Did you see they are doing a 'Tribute' to the Bee Gees? We won't want to get tickets to that one either"

It was a difficult effort but I managed to suppress my laughter and wait til we were safely outside before I shared with Robin and Jim. How they missed the fact that Sinatra died in 1998 and of COURSE it wasn't him, I do not know. Jim also pointed out there's only one Bee Gee left. Hahahhahaha.
