This past weekend was pretty cool. The Tar River Orchestra played a George Gershwin concert with the NC Master Chorale. The highlight of the concert was the soloists brought in to sing Porgy and Bess. They were simply amazing, as was the chorus. Fellow UK fan Susan Lohr played Rhapsody in Blue and did a wonderful job with it. It was a good concert, and the audience was huge. Nearly a packed house in Meymandi, which I have never seen from any group aside from the NC Symphony. Wow. I wish the brass band could garner an audience like that. maybe someday.
