HAPPY NEW YEAR

HAPPY NEW YEAR

My wish for all is a peaceful, prosperous, healthy and Happy 2011. I rang in the New Year in beautiful downtown Nashville. A friend invited me to the Re-Opening of our magnificent Schermerhorn Symphony Center. It was the  celebration of  the first concert in the Center since the devastating May, 2010 flood that destroyed it and many other downtown venues. The concert began at 9 p.m. nearly my bedtime. The guest artist was virtuoso violinist Itzhak Perlman. The concert lasted two hours culminating with champagne and sweets to toast in the New Year. While we were enjoying the concert in the Center, crowds filled Broadway Street to enjoy country music stars performing at Waterfront Park. They rang in the New Year as a giant guitar dropped counting down the seconds to midnight. Fireworks illuminated the sky over the Cumberland River. We live in a beautiful city. Make it your destination in 2011.
