The Electric Guitar The Greatest Entertainment Trip of All Time

My wife and I received a special treat recently, when invited to attend the Dallas Symphony, and as a result of our hostess being honored that evening, were seated in "Box A" of the hall which places you at the very front of the auditorium just above the stage and orchestra. From this vantage point, the Conductor and Musicians movements are very apparent, as is the music itself. The program conducted by Jaap van Zweden, originally from the Netherlands, included a varied selection of music by Tchaikovsky of Russia, Mozart of Austria and Ravel of France and included a duet of pianos and four handsNot only was the music fascinating, but also the motions of the Conductor, lunging forward to motivate the musicians, and synchronized movements of the musicians, violin bows moving in exact timing with each other.
