Just wanted to let you know how much I enjoyed The Firebird concert last Sunday! Not being very familiar with Stravinsky’s music, I guess I expected a lot of atonal sounds, but found the work exciting and challenging – aided greatly by the educational exercises Maestro Maull had us do. It was also great to see so many young people there – that is wonderful outreach you offer. Best wishes for another great season!
