Every once in a while, the St. Louis Symphony Orchestra generously offers local bloggers tickets to a performance. I am not one of those bloggers. Happily, Julie is.
Gil Shaham was our soloist, dancing his way through Prokofiev's Violin Concerto No. 2. That's him on the right with the long tie.
Watching him play was almost as much fun as listening to him, and I thought he sounded incredible.
The whole program was strong. I'll let JD tell you all about it. I'll just leave you with another pic of Powell's staircase
...and part of the view as we wandered back to our car.
