What a great concert you guys gave today!!! Ed Harris is truly a great mind to work with. Heh, even if you had the extra "encore" for recording purposes, you guys sounded like you weren't even tired. I fell in love with a new piece I've never heard before....Eric Whitacre's "October."

For those of you who missed the concert because of football, you can order a CD through http://www.johnsondigital.com. I believe the price is $15.00.
