Recently, a few of the younger kids had an opportunity to visit the Baltimore Symphony. Since I couldn't take them myself, I enlisted one of our volunteers, Greg, to be their chaperone. The symphony was Carnival of the Animals by Saint-Saens. I was discussing the concert with David in the car today:
David, we never got to talk about how you liked the concert you went to with Mr. Greg. How was it?
It was ok.
Just ok? What was wrong?
Well, Mom, the music was all wrong.
What do you mean?
They used all the wrong instruments and the tempo was way too slow.
I mean, Mom, that is *not* how Beethoven's Fifth goes!
