Whenever I hear 'Africa' by Toto I am immediately in a good mood! It is one of my favorite songs and some of my musician friends even sang it a cappella at my wedding. I heard Toto perform it live at Summerfest a few years ago and sang along to every word!

I have performed this piece twice, once with LGSO and once in college at UW-Eau Claire. It is such a beautiful, simple melody and I love the way that it builds.
I love the Simple Gifts Melody and the way Aaron Copland passes it from instrument to instrument in Appalachian Spring. I performed this piece in college and walked down the aisle to it at my wedding, so it holds a very special place in my heart!
Gustavo Dudamel is my favorite conductor and I love watching these young people play such an exciting piece! So much energy!
