A beautiful day

It's been in the mid 70s, light breeze, pool heater's been a heating steadily, no nasty smells from the industrial dairy farms south of I-10, frequent hummingbird visits and fly-bys, and going to see the Phoenix Symphony this evening. Our friends Tim & Jill came to visit last year at this time - March and October are THE times to visit Phoenix.
VERDI - Nabucco Overture
DVORÁK - Serenade for Strings
DE SARASATE - Fantasy on Bizet's Carmen
MENDELSSOHN - Symphony No. 4, ("Italian Symphony")
Heard / saw the Mendelssohn piece played in Greenville several years ago, and thoroughly enjoyed it. Though Greenville is 1/40th the size of Phoenix, the GSO is a much better group, has an amazing director in Maestro Edvard Tchivzhel, has a much newer venue, and plays with a great deal more passion than the Phoenix symphony - which only seems to be there to get a paycheck, and go home, as soon as possible. But hey, the Phoenix Symphony is better than wrastlin, or a dirt track date!
