I loved the performance. All the different sounds of the instruments was exciting to me. Learned a little about New Orleans and brass bands as well!!!!

This was wonderful. I kept getting so many wonderful images in my head because of the music, especially during "Clair de Lune" right at the beginning. I also enjoyed getting the little tidbits of history concerning the pieces before each performance.
