Manny, I really enjoyed your concert last night. Meyers made the Tchaikovsky Violin Concerto look easy. I loved the Shostakovich. You sounded wonderful! That must be a real joy to lead a brass section of that caliber. I was even breathing deeply at the end of the fourth movement. Wow! Was that an E-flat you were playing? What a great sounding horn. My son, Michael, had tickets for us. It made me realize that it's been far too long since we've attended a live concert. For big groups, that is such a wonderful hall for listening and playing. I really like the risers that you are on. It makes it so much easier when you're not having to blow into the backs of others. Thanks for a great concert.
