Somewhere Around Cloud Nine...

Happy Birthday to me, two months early...

 Sunday night, the husband treated me and the good and faithful "D" (my assistant manager at the caf√©) to an Oregon Symphony performance of Carmina Burana. And then we went out to a fancy dinner at the Heathman Hotel ½ block down the street from "The Schnitz" (the Arlene Schnitzer Concert Hall.)

Ever since I turned myself on to Carmina Burana earlier this year, I knew I would have to hear it performed live. But I thought that, living out here to the far west of nowhere, I would have to wait forever.

But lo and behold, the Oregon Symphony performed it today as their final concert of the 2008 season. I only heard about it on Saturday, our seats were so crappy we were practically sitting in the orchestra’s laps…

But still…it was fantastic.

Judi! I got to "see" Carmina Burana! Score!

Score, indeed!  Oh, you know that I love Carmina Burana!  And to hear it live...it's been a few years since I've had that pleasure!  Wow, your husband did GOOD!  I'm so glad you got to hear it.  It's so beautiful!
