In our city newspaper today, we read about James Ehnes…the title is “From Brandon Prodigy to Global Superstar” (Brandon is a Manitoba city). James has become a world-renowned violinist and conductor. Since the concert tonight was sold out “to the rafters”, the rehearsal was opened to those who wanted to attend, and we went. What a great concert, including “The Four Seasons” by Vivaldi. It was fun to see the musicians in casual clothes… flip-flops and all. Usually we see them at the concert hall in much more formal attire. The rehearsal was held in an old church with wonderful acoustics and great stained glass windows. There were some re-runs and pauses, as after all, it WAS a rehearsal, but that just added to the fun. I think in the future, I’d like to see more rehearsals!
