Reply to "What concerts have you been to lately?"

I doubt that I will ever consider myself a classical music fan, but I enjoyed the DuPage Symphony Orchestra last night at a chilly outdoor performance. "With a Gypsy Flair" was the theme. Pieces included those by Liszt, Khachaturian, Brahms and Strauss, for those of you in the know about this type of music. A few portions were familiar. With the weather being less than perfect, I concentrated more on what I was hearing than socializing and drinking wine with our friends. I liked the complexity and layers of the music, and the highlight for me was a fantastic solo by the principal trumpet.
