The next time you spend $300 million on a movie budget, please spend a little of it on a better "sad melody". Seriously, just do better.

 Wow, what a weekend. Twas the @lakeforestsymphony Gala and two concerts at separate venues. I'm so fortunate to work with an amazing staff who are incredibly talented and dedicated. We've each worked a lot more than 30 hours in the past 72. They're amazing. #RIPWaterCooler  It's pretty awesome that my job requires me to watch an orchestra make music. I became Executive Director of the @lakeforestsymphony in July and it's been a blast! I'm honored to get to work on bringing classical music to Chicagoland. This weekend begins our 60th anniversary season. Come see this group rock some Stephenson, Mendelssohn and Dvorak. . . . #orchestra #symphony #lakecounty #60thmemories #lakeforest #classicalmusic
