Lebay Red Velvet
Took BART. Davies Hall not far. Although it was a cool evening, it seemed a little toasty in the concert hall. Plush velvet seats hold heat. Dress in layers.

We had a blast! It was really fun to dance in the foyer before the performance. The music was lively, the conductor full of life, everyone seemed to have a grand time. The Cal Marching Band, participating in "76 Trombones Lead the Big Parade"...continued
