Dan and I are just home from the San Francisco Symphony concert that bloggers were invited to attend. I will be blogging more tomorrow; right now I’m fairly fried. But Dan is quickly seeing about photos, so if he gets to that soon enough I’ll post a few.

Just a few quick things:

  • Why do some parents bring a child who is young enough to cry and sleep but not old enough to enjoy a concert?
  • What was that high humming noise—quite subtle, mind you—I heard. Lights? Fans? I wonder. I’m sure a lot of people don’t hear it, but I can tell you that Davies isn’t a silent hall.
  • GREAT FUN to meet bloggers “Monsieur C-” The Standing Room (he sat at the concert) and “SFMike” of Civic Center. I met a few other folks too, but I didn’t know them via their blogs prior to tonight, and no blog URLs were handed out. (I did have my cards with me, but I wasn’t about to pester people with them unless they handed me one first.)
  • I love Steve Paulson’s playing. He always sounds so great!
  • The horns were fantastic.
  • I don’t get Rachmaninoff. I don’t get Rachmaninoff. I don’t get Rachmaninoff.

    More on that last one tomorrow, as well as more comments about the concert and program, and seeing Maestro Gaffigan. (Sorry, Cooper, but we didn’t get to actually shake hands or anything, or I would have given him your greeting.)

    Okay. Enough for tonight. I’m tired.

    Oh. And I wore brown. Well, a patterned skirt. But mostly brown. Not black. Even brown shoes. (So many musicians, even when wearing colors, still wear black shoes!) :-)
