Joshua Bell

Continuing the treating myself at the end of the semester, I went to the Joshua Bell and the Academy of St. Martin in the Fields concert. If you don't know who Joshua Bell, you may recognize him from the WaPo piece where he played in a subway.  I'm not a big lover of classical.  I do enjoy it on occasion and I like Jazz, though I have no true appreciation of it.  I need to listen to both more at any rate.  When I heard Bell was coming to Ann Arbor, I immediately scooped up a ticket without even looking at the date in part because I knew I wouldn't get a chance to see him again for so cheaply.  I will restate here what I said on Facebook, please understand that I mean no disrespect to the Chicago Symphony Orchestra when I say that Joshua Bell and the Academy of St. Martin in the Fields makes the CSO sound like a garage band.  For real.  It was absolutely amazing.
