And finished at Benaroya Hall enjoying Handles Messiah.
Each year, I think I will get tickets for Handels Messiah. The radio commericals always pull me in! And this year, we finally got our act together and got tickets early (at the Day of Music).
Oh, and some one now wants to learn to play the violin.
