The view from the stage

Ever wonder what it’s like to sit on stage at Symphony Hall?  I grabbed my Flip camera and got a shot of the view from the stage risers, minutes before the orchestra rehearsal started.  For me, it’s that Fenway Park feeling… the feeling you get as you walk up the ramp to find your seats and see the green of the ballfield… sitting on stage in the chorus risers as the orchestra assembles and you survey the empty Hall, the orchestra members, and the chorus… (and of course, Eryk.)  It’s not butterflies or anxiety.  Just a feeling that IT’S SHOWTIME and LET’S GET THIS SUCKER STARTED as you look forward to the event itself.
