Playing through the fog

Playing through the fog

Coming back to San Francisco is always exhilarating! It was my home for nearly 8 years and I'm always tickled to see my favorite landmarks: the spires of St. Ignacious Church, Sutro Tower, Stern Grove, and the stunning Golden Gate Bridge. My heart starts to race when I see the Civic Center and Davies Hall, where we performed tonight. I miss many things about this dynamic city - but the fog is definitely not one of them! It was hovering all around us as we landed, boarded our buses and walked on Market Street. Today's fog was mixed with some patches of blue sky and an occasional glint of sunlight - just enough to be invigorating…or maybe I’m just excited about tonight’s performance!
