I've been reading you for a long time, but probably haven't ever commented that I can remember. Just had to say, love that you're a Ma fan and going to a classical concert (I'm a professional violist, it's nice to know people in my age group still enjoy concerts). When I was 12 and everyone had pictures of Ricky Schroeder and Kirk Cameron on their bedroom walls, I had pictures of Yo-Yo Ma and Baryshnikov on mine. I did get to meet Ma once when he played Dvorak with a symphony I worked for at the time, and he was incredibly nice and humble. Anyway, no particular point to this rambling comment except I felt I should say hello after reading you for several years. :-)


Hey, thanks for delurking! I was actually a musician once...played violin through my junior year of college and was a voice major my first year (wound up minoring and switching to an English major, but that's how I met my husband, which is how I was at Tanglewood yesterday, since he's working there for the summer).

We saw Ma play the Dvorak Cello Concerto and the BSO play the New World Symphony a few years ago at Tanglewood, too, and it's still my favorite concert I've seen there. He definitely seems like an ultra-cool guy in addition to being a monster cellist. I actually walked in on a master class he was teaching at Longy years and years ago, because I was lost looking for a college audition room. He was VERY nice about it. :) A friend of my husband's recently met him when he came to perform in Boston and said he was awesome, too.

Thanks again for reading and commenting!
