my greatest fear is that there is no pms and this is my real personality

My dad's 50th anniv Cover~

^_____^ great great concert *applauds & whistles* and proud sisterly boast - My brother's Organ solo was superb as usual..

50th anniv of the local symphony Which has really gotten so much better over the years..
The Orchestra conductor is PERFECT Charles Greenwell - Before Detroit Lost their classical music station (Such a tragedy really - WQRS) He was an DJ for the classical station and seems to know every bit of liner note trivia and interesting detail on every composer.

So fun - My oldest brother on organ, his wife (my husband's sister) on 1st chair flute) in the audience ,.. Leigh & I, my Mom & Dad, Leigh's Mom & Dad, My Dad's sister (aka Great & Groovy Aunt Pat)
and other friends.

There was an 'afterglow' event -at some local restaurant. virtual and invisible hugs to my great neighbor Mim.. who let my doggies out on a Pee break while we were out! (My neighbor has like 8 dogs - so I'm lucky in that regard. My previous neighbor before her was insane & actually threw poison on our grass - .... oh well that's another story)

but the Saint-Saens organ symphony! OMG ! hahaha I was ready to wave my hands and have everyone sway lighters back & forth (hahaha ok NOT... this crowd was mostly 60+ and someone had an oxygen tank)
They really sounded great though - and now I know why the conductor so loved the piece

Also included ( set list!)
Southern great lakes fanfare P Kirby (yay! local talent!!!!!)
English folk songs suite R Vaughn Williams
1. March Seventeen Come sunday
2. Quick March Sea songs
3. Intermezzo: My bonny boy
4. March Folk songs for somerset

Capriccio Italien, Op 45 Tchaikovsky

Symphony #3 in C minor Op 78 Camille Saint-Saens
I just regret there are always so few young people in the crowd.. /

go figure - no matter my fandom (classical or jrock) I'm always seeming to be odd person out age wise

hahah my Mom saw a plaque w/my subject line on it - and so she had to get it for me.. I'm always saying I have PMS
pms ( well I swear I have a period every 2 weeks.. so ahah it could happen!)

After the concert I had a chance to visit some more at my parents house w/my Aunt & talk to my brother Greg and give birthday wishes..

I brought my Le ciel magazine & Smile photobook for my Aunt to see who I had seen in Baltimore -
She found the photos rather 'vivid' .. and ahha she said "last time I was at your house, I saw some fellow with blonde hair - he was adorable.. .." (This was blonde era Hyde) so I showed her a picture in the Le ciel mag and explained how they are always changing hair color "oh.. he looks different. but wow , they all look so young and skinny. I'm glad you like this, it must add excitement to your life~ " hahahaha she kills me
