Lemony Snicket

Lemony Snicket is being performed in Charlotte this weekend I took today’s photo because of the lighting, which I thought was especially appealing. However, by chance the photo also include a sign advertising a performance, by the Charlotte Symphony called, Lemony Snicket’s. We are pleased to be taking our grandson to the performance this weekend. The event website shares the following description:

Join us for mystery, magic and music in this special program that features an orchestral “whodunit” with Lemony Snicket’s “The Composer Is Dead” in which the entire orchestra is under investigation!

The performance will be at the Knight Theater at 430 S Tryon St. Following is a link to the Lemony Snicket’s event page.


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.

Jazz at the Bechtler Museum

Jazz at the Bechtler Friday night we enjoyed jazz at the Bechtler Museum of Modern Art. As normal we enjoyed the music. However, I was especially interested in a couple of comments from the stage which I would like to share. Specifically it was mentioned that “2017 is the 175th anniversary of invention of the saxophone.” Also, another comment was made. Something along the lines of: “John Taylor was president in 1842 when the saxophone was invented. But really, in the course of history, what does it matter who the president was”.

Embassy Suites

the Embassy Suites The Embassy Suites, by Hilton, is new construction in Uptown Charlotte. Interestingly it is across the street from the Hilton Garden Inn. So hopefully they will attract different clientele or they may be robbing Peter to pay Paul (smile).
