Let’s go to the Cincinnati Symphony

Hello Friends,

As most of you know, I am a huge classical music fan. I’m the type of person that will clap easily at a baseball game when the Reds hit a homerun, but will stand and cheer wildly after an outstanding rendition of Stravinsky’s Rite of Spring.

I have gone through the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra’s rep for the 2007/08 season and picked out a number of concerts that I consider must hears. If anyone wants to go with me, just give me a holler!
