    Red face It's not that she's sentimental or anything...

    Got the following email from DD # 10 (the baby of the family), who is a senior in college in Virginia:

    Hi Mommy,

    This doesnt have anything to do with anything, but if any of my siblings are asking what I want for Christmas.... THE VIRGINIA SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA has a "Classics from Chopin and Brahms" show on February 24th My Christmas wishlist is tickets to that because I weep at Chopin's concerto no.2.


    I had to laugh. All my kids are musical (DH and I met at Music College), and she is one of the few who really knows classical music. Only a 20-year-old asks for concert tickets so she can go and have a good cry!

    Awwwwwwwwwwww, with that logic and reasoning, I'd do what ever it took to make sure she got the tickets to go.

    I went ahead and forwarded to her older siblings, one of whom got right on it and is springing for 2 tickets, so she can bring a friend. Which will be necessary, since she does not drive!

    LOL. That piece brings me near to tears also. I really love Chopin and Brahms too. Glad she got her wish.

    Me, too, Trisha! DD studied violin during middle & high school, but hasn't picked up her violin in 3 years (since she left for college). So glad she still loves the music of the classical masters!
