I was lucky enough to be sitting in just about the best seat in the house for tonight's prom - the World Orchestra for Peace & Gergiev playing Scheherazade, among other things. Wow, what an ensemble!!! All but 2 of the first violins are concert masters or leaders in just about every major orchestra ... Manny I believe there was a trombone playing colleague of yours from the MO playing (who sounded amazing, by the way!) And George Vosburgh nailed that part to the roof. Amazing stuff! Put me in a great mood, anyway!
