    Nice version of the Dylan. Thanks.

    Was blessed to see the first concert above at the Highland Park United Methodist Church.
    And met the conductor at our hotel. That night Dallas received it’s first tornado in many years and we spent 30+ minutes in the hotel stairwell – damage is still evident now driving by several months later.
    We must still give thanks for all that we are given.

    Thanks for the reminder in these” fake” dark days of all that is good.
    The beauty of God will go on,as will we.
    This darkness will pass and we will be stronger . Time.
    Sleep well my friend.

    An additional note: Before being corralled into the stair well, we stood outside, to see and hear the dramatic lightning and thunder storm (in the right temporal order) – against a darkening and cloudy Texas sky – truely a display of nature’s majesty.

    Beautiful. Thanks.

    Forgot to add Rosalind Russell was a real beauty.

    Thanks for putting up, now of all times, that Rutter piece, so beautiful and transparent and so true.

    Chris Tietze, the organist and music director, schedules that to be sung by his children’s choir several times a year. The kids sing the treble parts and 5 or 6 men sing the bass and tenor, in the cavern of the Cathedral of St. Mary of the Assumption, seat of the Archbishop of San Francisco. It’s thrilling to a guy who cries at parades, I’ll tell you.

    Thank you, thank you, thank you! “The Weight” finally got Gal Gadot’s ”Imagine” out of my head.

    I know it’s off topic, and I’ve said it elsewhere, but it bears repeating. Chuck Schumer is a heaping pile of cow excrement. Thanks for reminding us of the beauty of life Gerard.

    I’m already missing the March ritual of counting down to Opening Day. However, as spring is officially here according to the astronomers, here’s the Milwaukee Symphony’s version of the national anthem of the American pastime:

    More seriously, but still joyfully: in honor of Bach’s birthday tomorrow, here is a virtuoso’s rendition of BWV 577, the Fugue in G Major, also known as the Jig Fugue. Should get your feet a-tappin’ and a smile on your face; I imagine Bach enjoyed writing it as much as we enjoy hearing it:

    Great pix, Gerard!

    Fender shreds, but Gibson c o n t r o l s.

    I always seem to end up with dust in my eyes when I listen to these:

    Most excellent. Thank you.
