I don't know whether I am really ready to report on the two concerts as I am still trying to process the whole experience. It was my first time and it is rather overwhelming really. To actually be there to see Leonard and his wonderful troup perform is just an honor. I was in the center front, 6th row back. It was amazing as I was right in front of him when he was singing
I felt he was singing just to me... I am sure he just sees rows of happy smiling faces, but I felt the contact. He really is awsome. No other words for it. Now I can see why people go to so many concerts. I need to go again.
My other memorable experiences in chronological order are: As I was walking down the hallway in the Hotel, there was Sharon Robinson walking towards me. I said hello and we talked for a few minutes. She is very, very nice and let me have a photo taken with her and signed an autograph (thank you mutti for the notebook
it came in very handy). Then I met Jarkko at the entrance of the Theatre, he also signed my book and we had a photo taken. He is wonderful. What a pleasure to talk to him and his wife.
Of course, also I met a lot of the Forum members who I feel I already know from their postings. I was sitting next to a very nice young man at the first concert, Brad, do not know his forum name. Hi Brad if you read this. He is from Boston, I forgot to tell him that I used to live in Cambridge, still live in Ma. though. All in all it was wonderful to be there. It was everything I was hoping for and a lot more.
