 Strange bedfellows?

We are lucky to have our own symphony orchestra here in Portland.  Many people I know attend their performances regularly, but apparently it took their doing the music of Queen to get me to attend!  On Saturday night we went out with a few friends to hear the PSO take on Freddie Mercury and company. They are such a talented group and sounded beautiful, but the event was not exactly what we expected; for instance, there was a singer.  Who invited audience participation.  Who encouraged my seat-neighbors to belt out notes they couldn’t quite hit.  The University of Southern Maine Choir joined in, too, and they helped round out the vocals. Here’s a snippet:

We had fun getting out and about with friends, and it made us both want to go back for a “real” PSO performance!
