Utah Symphony!

The season finally started again!!! We were feeling deprived and uncultured for a while there, but yesterday was the first of the season for the Utah Symphony. It was the Ode to Joy concert and it was Fantastic!!! We went to Z Tejas for dinner first, and I must say they are absolutely delicious! Their corn bread and chips and salsa is to die for! Then we went over to the Salt Palace to park and walk over to Abravanel Hall. The first half of the concert was a Piano Concerto and the pianist was absolutely amazing, the symphony was incredible, and Keith Lockhart was sweating profusely. hehe. The second half was even better, it was the symphony of Ode to Joy. The symphony had invited guest singers to sing the solo parts, and they blew me away. The tenor was absolutely amazing, he had quite the lungs and a wonderful voice. The baritone had quite the range, the alto was awesome, and the soprano was crazy! It was quite the treat to hear them. Overall, it was a very impressive performance! I'm so excited for the rest of the season to come!!! :D
