On a whim, I stopped in at a local Dallas church to listen to a cello concert this weekend. It was part of a salon-style Performing Arts concert series.
Over the course of an hour and half (give or take some), the principal cellist of the Dallas Symphony Orchestra, Christopher Adkins, led us on an exhilarating and emotional ride. He was accompanied by noted concert pianist Stephen Nielson – a beautiful performer as well.
Yes, I love classical music. And the cello, when played well, can make me cry.
I should have put Listening to Cello Music on my 50 Things that Bring Me Joy list. Because it does. Every time.
