We heard Joshua Bell play with the Oregon Symphony

Last night we attended our last concert with the Oregon Symphony for this season. The highlight was hearing Joshua Bell play the Sibelius Violin Concert. His playing was phenomenal! What a gift! If you ever get the chance to hear him in person, don’t miss it. The Sibelius was beautiful and extremely difficult. The audience went wild with applause. The Oregon Symphony also played Stravinsky’s complete Firebird Ballet. I can just imagine how tired the musicians were after such a night of playing very difficult music. Our conductor, Carlos Kalmar, is wonderful! We’re looking forward to next season’s concerts.
