Overheard at Conservatory Lab

 “I just had to send you a note to say – WOW!  The rehearsal was incredible.  Yes, the kids sounded great, and yes David is a wonderful musician and leader, but [holy moley] – the whole orchestra was like 1 being!  I’ve never seen anything like it.  They were so attentive and even though it was the end of the day, they were so alert and were having such a wonderful time.  

Seriously, WOW!  You guys can charge admission for those chairs in the back because what I saw yesterday was uplifting on a whole new level.”
