carnegie hall

how i love carnegie hall!

every time i go there,
i feel so old school...
getting dressed up,
and walking up the same stairs that people a hundred years ago walked up,
{and listening to same of the music too}
the men in tails and bow ties,
oh i love it all.
this evening and last, i saw the 
chicago symphony orchestra 
my old teacher was a soloist this evening in 
bartok's sonata for two pianos and percussions.
it was so glorious!
his calf heads sounded unlike every other performance that i've seen of that piece,
and i was so into it!
go teacher!

i love cso

elliott carter was in the audience.
he's like the lady gaga of the classical music world.
but he is pretty famous.
and he's 101 years old.
and i got to meet him!

can you imagine being 101?!?!

when i'm 101,

i'm going to be chillen on the big porch of my big southern home,
reflecting back on my life,
on my time in paris,
and barcelona,
and india...
on my three, maybe four (hopefully successful) careers,
thinking about what i'm going to cook for dinner,
and then i'll probably write my one millionth blog post.

i hope your weekends were all as lovely as mine!
