Concert

The concert last night was wonderful!! Someone (me) was trying to decide what to wear and had us running a little later than the other someone (him) would have liked. Waco Hall is on Baylor campus and we were not exactly sure where it was. Once it was located, we had no problem finding a place to park within several blocks. We arrived with time to spare. Most attendees were over 30 so were dressed appropriately, suits or sport coats and ladies in nice dresses or slacks. Our tickes were on the second row of the upper balcony. The hall only holds 2300 so there really are no bad seats. The Waco Symphony opened with a couple of selections, one of which was the William Tell Overture. It reminded me of the old Looney Tunes cartoons we would watch on Saturday mornings. They always used a lot of classical music in those old funnies. I was very, very impressed with the quality of the music. After a short intermission, it was time for Mr. Garfunkel to perform. When Greg first mentioned wanting to go see him, I was a little apprehensive. I wasn't so sure he could handle things without the help of Mr. Paul Simon. But I was wrong. Garfunkel was awesome!!!! The music took us back to a time in our lives when our world was uncluttered by the worries of adulthood, when we were younger and carefree. I even shed a few tears during some songs, for old memories and longing for a more innocent time. Garfunkel was quite the performer and his own small band was great! The symphony accompanied him on many of the selections and did a wonderful job. We have decided that attending more functions like this are a MUST!! It was lots of fun!!
