Bassoonist Felica Foland wrote Thursday morning following the opening night tour concert: “Our concert at the beautiful Soka U campus went well last night. The Adams was rockin’!
“As we bus out to Palm Desert, I find that I now think of this destination as an old friend, having been there so often with the orchestra. Our concert sold so well that my guests just yesterday were able to purchase four returned tickets. It is comforting to return and play at familiar halls and venues, just as it was exciting to play in a space new to us, as we did last night. Maestro David Robertson seems happy to be ‘home’ in So Cal. I am happy that St. Louis has adopted him!”
