It was a great night at Wolf Trap despite the threat of rain and a few rain drops that fell near the end of the night. The NSO was spectacular as usual, from the opening of "Fanfare for the Common Man" to the Copland piece about Lincoln narrated by Senator Mark Warner to the Ansel Adams photography. It was a fabulous night. The encore piece was "America The Beautiful" which we all got up and sang together which was a great end to a fabulous evening at my favorite concert venue Wolf Trap.
Quotes & Highlights
- “As majestic images of Half Dome and Horsetail Falls fade in and out on a giant screen, the music builds and then melts to mirror the majesty of a church or echoes the Southwestern style as a mission takes the screen. When the final moonlit mountain went dark, the music stopped and the full house erupted. The effect is both inspiring and humbling.” --J.T. Long, Sacramento Press
