Saturday night, a night with Jose Simbulan - Carnegie Hall/New York Philharmonic present Bernstein: The Best of All Possible Worlds - Landmarc

It is Saturday night...I am sitting on my bed...in a black dress shirt, Hugo Boss Black Biker Boots (yeah...I said it), and Banana Republic dark blue jeans (Yeah I didit again...name calling).  And you know what...I am totally enjoying my evening.  I am relaxed after an wonderful night of music, dinner, conversation with the roomies...and silence...yeah...silence.  All I really hear right now is roommates spoon hitting his bowl of cereal as background noice.  I mean it really could be much worse than that....most times I am listening to the sounds of the Caribean.  So if all I am getting right now is Steve's spoon clicking his bowl...I am ok. 

This evening I was invited by my friend Jose S. to accompany him to Carnegie Hall to enjoy the New York Philharmonic present Bernstein: The Best of All Possible Worlds.  It was great to listen to the music of a legend.  A legend who crossed such a variety of sounds...but kept to his unique style in each one of them.  While at the Boston Conservatory we devoted a complete year to his music and shows...I was lucky enough to be in both of the Staged productions - Candide and Wonderful Town.  The following year we did Andrew Lippa's "Wild Party" and I was so grateful to be a part of that show as well.  Anyway...back to Bernstein - lol - The evening was an amazing success from Susan Graham and Rod Gilfry to Rocardo Morales, Jeremy Denk and Robert Spano....it truly was magnifique.  

Then following the evening...already in a blissful peace...I accompanied Jose to Landmarc at Columbus Cirlce where we had dinner and conversation....ummmm my chicken sandwich was beyond decicious...the atmosphere was amazing...and well...the music selection rang out the right tunes over and over.  Jose and I were laughing and moving to the sounds and beats of the night you could say.  And that is what brings me joy...you can hang with friends...and then you can HANG WITH FRIENDS... love me some Jose!

Anyway....it is time for bed..and I have got to get some beauty sleep...I will try and blog tomorrow.  

Night ya all!
