BYU Orchestra at Carnegie Hall

So on Wednesday night the BYU Orchestra played at Carnegie Hall, and a local member decided to buy out the ENTIRE show and give a bunch of tickets away to each ward in the area! So nice of them... AND the best part was, it got a bunch of YSA's to actually go on some dates. I was waiting for my date (yes, I had one too) and I saw a bunch of people walk by paired off. I was so impressed.

In true Ashley form, we accidentally chose a seat where the people sitting EXACTLY in my eye line were lovers, canoodling the ENTIRE performance... bleh... But that's okay, what happened next totally made up for it... One of the pieces they played was by the guy whose compositions were always used in Looney Toons cartoons, with Bugs Bunny and Elmer Fudd. I couldn't help but giggle at the part in the music where you can just imagine Bugs Bunny dancing on his twinkle toes towards Elmer Fudd! Loved it....
