Beethoven's 9th

We went to the local symphony to hear Beethoven's 9th symphony... the Ode To Joy choral symphony.

This was the last performance of the 2004-2005 season, and our conductor and musical director, Kyle Wiley Pickett, did a bang up job.  One never sleeps through Beethoven, and this time was no exception.

The sound continues to stink in Laxon Auditorium, but the orchestra and Pickett overcame that handicap and sounded terrific tonight.

For those interested, here is Kyle Wiley Pickett's history (pdf file) with the North State Symphony.
