My husband and I attended a Jazz concert last evening with The Whitworth Jazz Ensemble and special guest, Branford Marsalis.
We got super seats – only 3 rows back from the stage:
The venue was the Fox Theater in downtown Spokane, Washington. It was originally a 1931 Art Deco movie theater designed by architect Robert C Reamer, who was notable for his design of the Old Faithful Inn in Yellowstone Park, Wyoming.
After a 31 million dollar renovation in 2007, the restored building retains some of its original architectural details and lighting fixtures:
Branford played a solo of “Stardust” on the saxophone that was extraordinary! I closed my eyes and enjoyed listening to him play his instrument with such precision.
After three standing ovations, the crowd dispersed but I don’t think anyone was ready for the concert to be over.
Here is the beautiful lighting in the ceiling – I just love the patterns!
Wishing you all a Sunny Sunday… listening to music that makes you happy!
