The music selections were wonderful and generally well performed. The maestro extremely personable and made the audience feel welcome and included. Loved Duke Ellington's Solitude, the Leroy Anderson piece which took us back to another era when that piece was popular during our growing up years, the Holberg Suite by Grieg wonderful to hear and sounded upbeat and pretty much on the money, and the Handel pieces although pretty complex were good. Nice job on the program handout.
