I just love concerts, plays, mostly comedies and musicals, and just great entertainment. This does not include some of the more popular music that some of my peers and my children grew up with. I favor more classical and standards, old rock and roll, and folk. Some opera, if it is great melody and not endless repetition. I think the repetition in much of opera is what drives me crazy – get on with it already!
Can you tell what personality color I am?
Any way, my friend Carol and I went to Bob’s Salt River Brass concert at the Mesa Arts Center. It was the annual salute to the veterans concert An American Dream. This is always a good one. The guest soloist was Peter Wilson, virtuoso violinist of the White House in D.C., and part of the President’s Own United States Marine Band, which band was here for a great concert Halloween evening. That was a treat, all right!
Anyway, we always enjoy these concerts and Gunnery Sargent Peter Wilson was awesome – classically trained and also did the Orange Blossom Special and The Devil Went Down to Georgia. He said that when he joined the band the conductor had him learn bluegrass.
And he said this is the first brass band with which he has played and it was the most fun he’d had. He’ll be back. Yay!
Wishing you great brass in your life,
