Orchestra conductor taking one final bow after free community concert
Generations enjoying the concert together
One final bow?  I joined throngs of people at the Lake Harriet Pavilion to watch our world famous MN Orchestra.  Their beautiful music was only briefly interrupted by 747s passing overhead, on their ways to who knows where.

It was overwhelming to see the level of community support, yet sad knowing they're not the decision makers. Who knows where our orchestra might be in the months and years ahead, with the likely departure of the conductor and key musicians.  Let's hope for a resolution to the lock out.  It would be a shame to see their newly renovated orchestra hall made into a movie theater or perhaps a museum to the wonderful "good old days" of live classical music.
