    Default "Wow"

    This is a nice story:

    BOSTON (AP) — America’s oldest performing arts group is looking for a child who was literally wowed by a recent classical music concert.

    The Handel & Haydn Society had just finished its rendition of Mozart’s ‘‘Masonic Funeral’’ at Boston’s Symphony Hall on Sunday when a youngster blurted out loudly: ‘‘WOW!’’

    Boston classical music station WCRB-FM captured the exuberance on audio. The crowd can be heard bursting first into laughter and then rousing applause for the child.

    Wonderful story. Glad it was captured on audio.

    And you know the first few times I listened to this work I too felt quite moved by it.

    Great story!

    The first time I listened to Liza Ferschtman's performance of Erich Korngold's "Violin Concerto", I had no idea it was recorded 'live' (not a single sound to give this away). At the end of the performance, a deep voiced man who sounded like he had a front row seat, bellowed out, "YEAH!" Took me by complete surprise.

    I love music. I want music. I need music.
