Thank you St. Louis
I have attended your concert in St. Louis last Sunday evening to "thank St. Louis" for support of the St. Louis Symphony. I am a very positive person, but have been having many difficulties recently that are challenges for me. I found out about the concert the evening before when a symphony member announced it at another event. My husband couldn't go, so I called a friend I hadn't seen for a while and convinced her to go at the last minute.
WE WERE SO MOVED!! We knew 10 minutes into the concert that it was no accident we were experiencing the joy of that concert together. A symphony concert will never be the same for me as before. Your insight into the composer, your love of the musicians, the audience, and mankind has enlightened me! I have floated above all the negative experiences all week! I bought your book, had you sign it, collected a kiss, and watched you bring David Halen, our concertmaster, to tears! Wow- and I haven't even had time to read the book yet! I can't wait, and I have several others in line to borrow it when I am finished. Please put me on a list for any events you have in the future anywhere! Also, your website is impressive!
