December, 13th “Peter and the Wolf”

San Francisco Youth Symphony

Last performance of the year.

It wasn’t a dance, but I thought it important to reflect on the last performance I attended in 2015.  I took Alice, along with Rich and N.  Perhaps a new holiday tradition.  She really wanted to stay for the sing-a-long at the end, but she hit her 3yr old limit (and there was just too much Nutcracker).

It seemed fitting to end the year in the company of loved ones.  Sharing the wonder of the theater – dance, music, or otherwise – is special.  I have such fond memories of seeing Pilobolus Dance Theater and hearing the Handel’s Messiah as a kid.  As much as people claim the ephemerality of dance and performance, I contend that there  can be a residue, something that sticks over time.

So now what?

More, of course.
