gil shaham + kansas city symphony

Gil Shaham (photo credit: Christian Steiner)Last weekend was really fun! On Friday night I saw Spamalot at Starlight Theatre with friends, which was ridiculously silly and full of favorite Monty Python gags from Monty Python and the Holy Grail. This production even featured a few Kansas City natives! Read my friend Lee’s review here.

On Saturday morning I went to the Kansas City Zoo with my friend Kelly, and later that evening my husband and I saw the Kansas City Symphony perform at the Kauffman Center. Their guest soloist this time was violinist Gil Shaham, who was breathtaking to hear and watch in concert! Shaham played Berg’s Violin Concerto, which I hadn’t heard live before. It was also great to see the KC Symphony program a full half of twentieth-century music… more please! I really hope to see symphonic orchestras become more progressive and contemporary minded in my lifetime. Read my full review of Gil Shaham with the KC Symphony on KCMetropolis.org: From shadow into light

Book review coming up soon: I finished reading The Love Song of Jonny Valentine last night—my 25th read book of the year!
