Until last night I had never been to the symphony before. Sad, but true. I was among the lucky few who was invited by the San Francisco Symphony to a performance conducted by James Gaffigan.
The entire evening was lovely. The staff who greeted us were lovely, the performance was lovely and every person there looked lovely. I was particularly enchanted by Gaffigan, the young and ebullient new conductor. Even though our seats were fantastic, I was almost wishing we had what people probably believe to be the bad seats, those directly behind the musicians, so I could watch his face as he conducted. I also very much enjoyed the fact that this organization was really making an effort to reach out to bloggers and to young people. I can't wait for my next trip to the San Francisco Symphony.
