Yesterday, Saturday April 21, was a simply beautiful day ! Not only did I perform a great work, Beethoven's 9th Symphony with the Oshawa Durham Symphony to a full house, but had the added bonus of finally enjoying Ontario spring weather. ( sunny and 25 degrees). James McDonald, that played 2/3rd horn with us, lives quite close to Oshawa in Port Perry... and in the break he invited myself, and a few other musicians from the orchestra to his GRAND house for dinner. Here we are sitting on his HUGE patio ! amazing house... what a great place to have large parties and get togethers..! I hope to visit James one day again very soon..... !
