Life is a symphony...

...and you just never know what your missing until you have a fun experience!
Last Saturday we actually factually(flash back to Charolett's Web movie...I'm feeling all kinds of musical) went to the LaCrosse Symphony Orchestra. We went to see...
...Margit who is J.J.'s girl friend, she is a concert violinist.
We met Margit's parents for the first time, it was probably to J.J.'s advantage that we were all dressed up and in a formal setting;) We also met her violin teacher, he is in the orchestra also. Who would have thought that a concert violinist who teaches violin to 17 students also has a violin teacher?!? It was so fun that you could hear just one little pluck of a violin string, and that so many different sounds came out of each instrument. It has to be appreciated in real life, TV does not do an orchestra justice.
Avery, Ian(Grace's boyfriend), and Grace went with.
Willy went too and informed us that he may become a symphony orchestra junkie, he loved it! Willy plays trombone, in the high school band so he understands details that I have no clue about.
This was a new experience for both Jon and I. I enjoyed the music and people watching. We may not purchase season tickets but defiantly would love to go again, especially if Margit is playing!

I seldom get to go, but I do love a live orchestra! You are right, you just have to be in person to really appreciate the beauty! It just wasn't something I was exposed to growing up!

What a fun evening for your family. Yes, you all look beautiful all spiffed up, but Margit's parents would be equally impressed in everyday life. :)

How fun, Jody!! Stringed instruments really have a way of drawing out emotions in people, in my opinion. It looks like this was such a fun family experience for all of you!!
