Thursday night's concert with the Philadelphia Orchestra conducted by Steven Reineke featuring vocalist Megan Hilty capped a great run of concerts at the SPAC in Saratoga Springs with the orchestra! Steven Reineke is always a pleasure to work with and is incredibly gracious and thoughtful to his players.
Performing Bolero on soprano saxophone was another highlight! Hearing Yo-Yo Ma perform on the same concert was also wonderful. After performing Haydn's Cello Concerto in C major, Mr. Ma performed the Bouree's from Bach's 3rd Solo Cello suite for his encore. Yo-Yo Ma demonstrated a masterful presence and artistry! Even better, I was able to meet and speak briefly to Mr. Ma and pass along my saxophone recordings of the Bach Solo Cello Suites!
