Unsure of the current parking lot situation, I parked up on Oxford St near Hearst and walked over.

I wore nice but casual clothing, with warm wrap for the evening chill.

Didn't like the music selection at all and the way it was mic'd distorted the sound.

First piece was boring.
Loved Dawn's voice, which in her first was drowned out by the orchestra.
Dawn was great in the second half, though it was too little.
Loved the encore Piazola, but what about the Finnish junk?

The second half of the performance outshone the first half. The Bartok and Grieg were wonderful. The modern compositions were a bit more difficult to appreciate.
