Jared, classically trained bassist that he is, loves this stuff.
I, short attention spanned as I am, went only out of love for my husband...
Turns out? Mahler is sweet!
I was literally on the edge of my seat in the balcony, gripping my program and leaning forward, not even counting down the 87 minutes until it was over and I could get back to my sweet sweet internets.

It was an awesome night (and not just cause I got to wear my new polka dot dress from Forever 21).
The hall was packed; Dudamel was all theatrical and inspired; no one's cell phone went off (at least until the very end); people stood up and cheered when it was over.
I'm telling ya. Culture with a capital C around these parts.
