Last night we enjoyed music at The Jazz Room. Matt Lemmler played piano and sang his compositions in honor of Steve Wonder. Matt led an 11 piece band and there were three guest vocalists.

When the crowd roared for an encore, they graciously played another. Also, Matt explained that in New Orleans the crowd would ask for a lagniappe.

Last weekend our grandson visited and we had an adventure at the Discovery Place. We enjoyed the dinosaur exhibit, our grandson played with the dinosaurs in augmented reality, dug for bones, launched a meteorite, and was inspired by an iMax movie call dream big.

Oh, and they had a tyrannosaurus, in a box, which was making lots of noise ;)

The Charlotte Symphony
Saturday evening we enjoyed the Charlotte Symphony along with a large crowd of music lovers. Note that Charlotte was experiencing a Winter weather alert on Saturday. It was very impressive that all of the Symphony members and roughly 75% of the crowd braved the ice and cold temperatures … Connie and I enjoyed the 4 block stroll from our condo to the Belk Theater.
