Cultured, I Am

I know this is getting to be repetitive, but it was another lovely day in St. Petersburg. Under another cloudless sky, I wandered down to the Saturday Morning Market for a light lunch, and some wonderful cheese and fresh produce. 

This evening I attended The Florida Orchestra's performance at The Mahaffey Theatre. And, yes, I walked to the theatre. Tonight's program included Debussy's "Prelude to the Afternoon of a Faun" and "Nocturnes" and Holst's: "The Planets". It was a great program, with "The Planets" being the featured composition. It opened with a rousing "Mars, the Bringer of War" and ended with "Neptune, the Mystic" with the voices of the Women's Chorus of the Master Chorale of Tampa Bay fading into silence. BRAVO !
