The Symphony and Chorus were terrific as were the duets and soloists. The 9th Symphony was inspiring and beautiful.
The Von Trapps were more of sensational component than able bodied singers.
The program seriously bogged down when Thomas Lauderdale spoke. He really is a poor MC in his cadence, hesitations and comments. Has anyone ever dared to encouraged him to get some vocal training? The show also dragged with Gus Van Sant muddling through Moon River and the twin governors painful croaking as they try to read the new lyrics to This State Is My State. They demolished Woody Gutherie. They could at least show some respect and memorize the words and rehearse it. Forget the first half of the program, really. Kinda hyped up with some mostly forgettable moments.
