First Visit to Orchestra Hall

Isabel, mommy, daddy & grandma went to Orchestra Hall today to listen to the MN Orchestra perform a compilation of songs written by Leonard Bernstein. They titled their performance "Bernstein Beat" and it was a part of their Young People's Concert Series. Most of the time Isabel was attentive, but there was a period of a couple of songs that she insisted on laying on the floor beneath our chairs in the box suite we watched from.
One of the things neat about this concert was that Leonard Bernstein's daughter, Jamie, was there on stage with the orchestra to educate everyone about the pieces of music and her father. It was very educational. I know I learned a lot.
Afterwards, we had lunch at the Fire Lake Restaurant. It was very yummy. They cook with organic, local & sustainable ingredients.
