I take back a third of the bad things I said about the Overture Center. The restyling and restoration of the Capitol theater (not seen at left BTW) is magnificent. It nearly makes up for the shortcomings of the big hall in the building.
Last night the Battlefield Band was magnificent. The sound started muddy but improved as the night went on. Just a few observations from the show.
After 30 years it has to be tough to get up for every performance. When it sounds as if you have, you've done well by the audience.
Putting a mic on the bagpipes is gratuitous. I'm certain we can hear you.
The more pipes you have, the better it gets.
I'm a lucky man to have music in my life.
