the Bowl

Last night Ryan and I headed out to the Hollywood Bowl to check out Tchaikovsky night - with fireworks!

The best parts were watching the conductor (he had a very exaggerated conducting style) and the pianist. How does someone become good enough to play like that? Oh yeah, I remember. Ten thousand hours of practice. I did read Outliers.

The USC marching band also made an appearance at the end of the 1812 Overture, along with the fireworks.

Oh, how I LOVE the Hollywood Bowl! (I never go anymore, sigh.) They sure know how to put on a show! Glad you got to have a nice date night & hopefully those hard benches were agreeable with your increasingly cute pregnant state!
