Such a good show. There's just something about bluegrass. (especially when performed by two MacArthur Genius Grant winners!)
They're just so good. If you ever get a chance, see them live. It's a phenomenal show.
It also included the naming of an improptu song just for Boston...many were thrown out by the crowd until the name "Wicked Pissah" came up and was the obvious choice.

A rainy day could do nothing to diminish the enthusiasm of the prospects of apple picking...and honestly, I would say this is a great way to do apple picking, since the crowds were much less crazy than usual! We went back to Honeypot Hill this year, still the home to delicious apple cider and sugared cider donuts.
Meg didn't know that you could actually go somewhere and pick apples! But she's on board with the idea now!

My first BSO concert this year was led by the newly-minted conductor, Andris Nelson, and what a lovely performance it was!
We had killer seats, right in the center of the main floor. The evening was a mix of pieces, from the overplayed (Beethoven's 8th Symphony) to something new to me (Bartok's Miraculous Mandarin) to an exciting favorite (Tchaikovsky's 6th Symphony). A great evening of music, even if it was on a Wednesday!
