Just found this bit from Brandon Shaw, a music student at Azusa Pacific University. He recently attended the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra concert in L.A. Here's a bit of Brandon's post:
"I went to Walt Disney Hall tonight and saw the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra from Amsterdam. They played Strauss’ Don Juan and Mahler V. They were fantastic. It was an experience unlike any other form of entertainment out there today. I was not only entertained. I was enriched. There are people out there who still love classical music and see the beauty in it and can appreciate it, even in our simple-media focused culture. These people will continue to enjoy what is one of the most wonderful forms of art."

For all you Brandons out there in the Boston area, Concertgebouw is yours to discover tomorrow at Symphony Hall. Yes, there will be student rush tickets. www.celebrityseries.org
