Seattle Adventures

Hello World!

   Last Monday I had the magnificent honor of being invited to hear live classical music played at the Seattle Chamber Music Society with some dear friends of mine.  

Me oh my giddy Aunt was it a.m.a.z.i.n.g!!
 
To start off the night, I was dropped off at a bestie's house where we got all 'dolled up.' 
 

Complete in heels, a borrowed dress, fancy hair, and makeup.

Me, JoAnna, and Elizabeth.

The night's program.

During the intermission break, JoAnna and I were able to actually MEET and TALK with Johannes Moser, (cellist) and Inon Barnatan (pianist)!!!!! Their duet was by far our favorite. They performance was breath taking and astounding! They both brought so much emotion and passion into the music that they played.  
 
When the whole performance was over, we met up with Johannes again.
 

Did I mention, that Johannes is their second cousin twice removed!?
Yah, I may have fangirled when I got a hug and a pictures. :D
 


 It was amazing being able to first hand meet some famous classical musicians. They were all so easy going, relaxed and humble. It was a truly unforgettable night with many wonderful memories. 
 
I'm honored by now being an official member of the family since I have met the famous cousin.
