Classical Music

I love classical music. I love to go to the symphony. I love other kinds of music as well, but not concerts. They are too crowded and too expensive. I don't ask Tito to go the symphony anymore. Not that he wouldn't go, because he would. It is because I wouldn't go to the Santana concert with him, so he went with Jose. And I wouldn't go to James Brown with him, so he went with Jose. I try to be fair in everything I do, so I stopped going to the symphony. Except, in the summer when the concerts are in the park and they are free. I pack a picnic supper and grab chairs and blankets and off we go. We arranged to meet Carrie and Dave last night.
We also grabbed our umbrella and hoped the rain would stop.

The stage was covered in plastic and they kept sweeping the water off, but the clouds started to clear

and the sun came out and everyone sat back to enjoy the music.

It was a wonderful concert - opera's greatest melodies - including The Barber of Seville, Carmen and the Can Can. I can hardly wait until next summer.
