Saturday at the Concert Hall

I don't normally hang around school at 8:00pm on a Saturday night. In fact, i try and avoid campus at all costs. But there i was, Saturday at DePaul's Concert Hall to listen to the DePaul Symphony Orchestra. After i settled into my seat and the music began, i decided that it wasn't as bad as i thought.

With Cliff Colnot conducting, the orchestra delivered a very pleasant Sinfonia Concertante in E-flat major KV 297b by the infamous Mozart. They then followed up with Romeo and Juliet Suite by Sergei Prokofiev. The concert ran straight through without an intermission and for a Saturday night, the turnout was rather good. The Concert Hall was filled up more than half capacity and the crowed was pleased with the performance, enthusiastically applauding after the performances.
