He's My Cello Fellow...yeah, yeah

Just got back from the Symphony. Gary says I need to post on a "non-musicians" recount of the symphony. He laughs hysterically when I tell him my thoughts afterwards.

First of all, it's so divine to rub furry elbows with all the Montgomery Society at the Symphony. Seriously, it makes me laugh because that's really the only time all the little old ladies like "Martha" (pronounced, Maaaahtha) and "Eleanor" get to drag out their furs...even though it was near 55 degrees outside! They all say things like, "isn't the symphony just mah-velous?" and "that 3rd movement of Bartok was ever so inspirin' (no-"g")...and "will I see you at the Junior League luncheon next week?" "We are inductin' (no-"g" again) our new society membahs"......

Anyway, back to the symphony. Throughout all the movements, I have a mini-movie going on in my head. It goes something like this...sweet music, pretty flute, isn't she lovely, skipping through the meadow, picking flowers and chasing butterflies on this bright sunny day. Uh-oh, scary music, he's coming out of the woods, he's chasing her, oh no, he's about to get her! Run, sissy, run! Hurry! Here he comes! He's running faster and faster...oh and it's the pretty music again, back to the skipping. I sit there and giggle to myself...sad, I know.

Then I like to watch the Maestro! First of all, can I just say "Seinfeld" episode? Remember the one where the Maestro demanded that everyone call him "Maestro" all the time. So, it takes me a few minutes to get that vision out of my head and then I'm on to examining every overly dramatic move the Maestro makes. Sometimes he looks like he's going down a set a stairs, yet there are no stairs there. Other times he was looking like he was drawing circles in the air and another time he looked like windshield wipers on a bus (you know, the upside down ones). Giggle again.

All in all, the music was beautiful, seriously, it was and I had a "mahhhvelous" time! Hey usher, where can I spit out my gum?

10 sweet friends had to say...:

Nobody can make me laugh like you, hon. I love your perspective on the orchestra. Thank you for coming to my concert even though you would have rather stayed home in your pj's and watched "24".

Oh girl...you are "mah-velous" at telling a story. You really are. Too funny!

BTW...that was a great photo. You looked "mah-velous" and so did your talented hubby.

what a hoot! sounds like a fun, fancy, schmancy night to me...hubby is quite dashing by the way..:))

Good Morning. I sent you an e-mail on the 15th, but found it in my "junk folder" this morning. It was returned after 4 days...weird. I re-sent it this morning. Let me know if you get it.

Have a wonderful day.

Hey Kat, no, I haven't received any emails. Try again! My friend that's getting married was just asking me if I heard from you. My email is: traceykirksey@knology.net

Thanks!

Great recap, Tracey. And you do look absolutely gorgeous with your equally handsome man!

And I watched 24.........it was goooooooooood.

;-)

TiVo, baby.

Hey Tracey - I had to LOL at your description of the concert. Yikes - I hope I never look like a set of wipers when conducting. ha ha !

You and John would be great at a concert - he can actually sleep all the way through the War Requim. ( hello - me singing with Robert Shaw -- and him on the 10th row - ASLEEP! ) Forgive him - he just flies planes.....

You're a trip! But seriously, that's exactly what I make my students do when we listen to classical pieces - imagine the action that could be taking place. Once a year I take my 4th graders to the Symphony for Children by the Lancaster Symphony Orchestra. It's sponsored by the Ladies Auxiliary, and your description of the women last night sounds pretty much like those auxiliary ladies!

RealEstateGirl said...

okay, now I don't feel so stupid...I mean, if Fourth Graders do it...then why can't I???!!!

Nothing will EVER surpass him playing Stille Nacht on the cello to me. ABSOLUTELY GORGEOUS.
