    I'm going to see Gil Shaham play for the first time in my life at the end of this month in Ohio.

    Would u make it a habbit to be fully prepared for the concert? I would read up abt the nature of the work, history of the performer and so on. And even hear different recordings b4 going for the concert. I think preporation work as such is important, in order to fully understand and appreciate the performance.

    I do that too usually, but sometimes it is an exciting thing just to go into a concert and dont know the work (or little). The first contact with it can be a wonder for you when it is played live.

    Oh, it's been a while since I heard the Cleveland Orchestra. I hope you have a great time. (I was born and raised in the Cleveland area and sometimes get homesick.)

    I am really excited&#33; Three violinists really stick out in my mind; Heifetz, Shaham, and Perlman. They are my three favourite ones. I heard he signs autographs afterward. I&#39;m going to try to get him to sign a poster I have of him. I&#39;ll frame it after he does. B)

    Well, it has it&#39;s nice spots&#33; It can be a dirty city, but it&#39;s gotten cleaner. The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame is there and it has a really cool looking building&#33; The views of Lake Erie can be really nice, especially at sunset. I used to spend many summer evenings at the Lake hanging out with my friends. When I was a child we would go sailing every Sunday.

    Well, the Cleveland Orchestra is good. My school used to take us to see the orchestra for field trips. I appreciated it&#33;

    Oh and BTW = by the way
