    Mr Wise have you ever attended a free Town Hall event? Do the tickets go quickly? I travel from eastern Long Island and it would be a downer if there were no tickets left. I guess I better have a plan "B" ready.

    Thank you for the information Ms Yates. It's funny, I live on Long Island, but I don't go into the city very much. I guess I figure that I can always go another time.
    Thanks again.

    I just got back from the concert................ it was FANTASTIC!!!!!!!
    Alison Balsom played on a picc, C trumpet AND a natural trumpet. The nat have holes for tuning purpose. She played the whole concert by memory!
    She played flawlessly.
    I had great seats in the balcony. Jimmy Owens, Chris Bubolz, Dominic Derasse and Mike Ponella were in attendance. A TM member from L.I. was there, I'm bad with names, sorry

    Her playing was impeccable. She played with an ensemble made up of violin, cello and keyboards. The first half used harpsichord, the second part was played on piano.

    The program was widely varied. She started the concert on piccolo, a Scherzer, I think, then switched to the natural trumpet. The first half of the concert was baroque music.
    The second half began with the Goedicke "Concert Etude," it was well played. She arranged or transcribed everything on the program.
    de Falla, Lindberg and Piazolla, were the other composers played on the second half.

    I was impressed by her ease of execution, her accuracy, her dead-on intonation......I did not see her using any false fingering, my friends say she used 2 and 3 on the Ebs. I didn't see it
    She has chops to burn, that was a long concert.


    And she is stunning to look at

    I want to thank you Mr. Wise for announcing this concert. If you hadn't said anything, I'd never have known and I would have missed a great concert. It was very nice to have met you as well.
