First let me tell you that if you ever get a chance to hear Christina Tan play the piano, go for it. I find most solo piano work sterile and cold, but she was like liquid. She filled the room with shimmers and textures that I can not describe.
There were cello players, organ players and a saxophone player who's tone and technique were so good that we all sat there stunned.
I hate opera. There, I confessed. A tenor from the Cleveland Opera got up sang some forgettable song that I could care less about. Then he turned and sang "I got me a cat and the cat pleased me" He sang the whole freaking song and had us in stitches. You have never heard a very proper Opera singer go "My pig went shimmy-shank, shimmy-shank" you just haven't lived.
Then we went home and my son began throwing up. Wee.
