Music means life matters
The Phoenix Symphony and Ballet meet in the remodeled Phoenix Convention Center downtown about a half hour drive from our home in the evenings after rush hour. We park a block away, price was up to $12 bucks and I felt I had to remind the guy there was a recession on.
It was a pops concert featuring the music of the Big Band Era. Glen Miller, Tommy Dorsey, Artey Shaw. Total enjoyment. The conductor suggested that most of the audience between 65 and 70 were conceived around the playing of some of those pieces.
