Drew McManus asked me to write something for his “Take A Friend To Orchestra Month” – a project where a bunch of guests write about – you guessed it – taking friends to concerts. Far be it from me to belabour my own awesomeness, but I’m rather pleased with the result. There’s even a Podunk Symphony Orchestra video in one of the footnotes, entitled “I think I heard it say ‘Moo.'”

You can read (and watch) the whole thing here.

    Great article – totally agree that applause between movements is probably a very good indicator of audience development success.

    I wouldn’t have taken her restaurant criticism seriously, either — after all, she ordered her steak well-done! I bet she put ketchup on it, too.
