- The Boston Pops, which operates a separate orchestra
- The Cincinnati Pops, which is really the CSO but with better jackets
Now, in high school I went through a swing dancing phase. I even still have a Lou Vega CD. There was even a brief attempt at learning how to dance in college, before my two left feet and large dose of social conscience got a hold of me.
Tonight's performance was energetic and a true crowd pleaser. BBVD performed the 90's hits that made them big and brought the swing movement back to suburbia. One of the highlight's was the performance of Minne the Moocher, a song that I have always loved.
After the show, BBVD joined the over 200 young professional on the backstage of Jones Hall. What a great start to an organization that has the potential to do some really great things for the symphony in the future.
Now I just cannot wait to hear the full orchestra doing one of the classic works, so I can finally hear what I am working for everyday.
