AT MOZART CONCERT, INDIAN DINNER

IMG_1433

Last night, we went to a Mozart concert by the Phoenix Symphony at the Scottsdale Performing Arts Center.  They played the Mozart Violin Concerto #4.Chen-Ray-6747

The soloist, Ray Chen, was phenomenal. I have heard many virtuosos play the violin in my lifetime, but never one like this young man who hails from Taiwan via Australia.   He plays the 1702 “Lord Newlands” Stradivarius violin on loan from the Nippon Music Foundation (click here to read his bio).

After Mozart, we walked over to a nearby Indian restaurant, “Jewel of the Crown.”  It is a family-owned establishment that my children and I have been frequenting for nearly three decades now.  It was Elizabeth’s first time there. She is not very keen on Indian food, but she looked right at home at this loveseat swing, posing like Goddess Shiva.  Or Shakti, of you prefer.
