What an amazing week, rehearsing, preparing, anticipating....finally meeting Merethe, playing with the orchestra, seeing Nick and Thomas so excited -- so much talent in the room! And...the Walt Disney Concert Hall, what an amazing venue. I have always loved seeing concerts there, but I never thought I'd see the audience from the stage! One thing I will say -- from the audience, it seems there is no bad seat in the house...from the stage, it is remarkable how close and intimate the audience feels! Nor have I ever seen the Disney Hall lit up the way it was for the show -- truly epic, and the following review describes.  I was very happy to share the pre- and after-show experience with Natalie Wilde again, after all our prep for the Nick Cave shows together -- AND, was very happy to see Marisa and Lauren, two of the awesome quartet who played Coachella with us, in the orchestra for the Two Steps from Hell Concert as well! I met so many amazing people -- including Reiko Nakano, the violin soloist / production manager (props for pulling that off!!), Petr, who is a joy to work with, and the wonderful Disney Hall staff....  It was truly an honor to see the talent and the fans, the hard work and the passion that Thomas, Nick and Merethe share, from up close, and to share the experience with them!  Here are a couple first reviews for your enjoyment....Shout out to Vince, from Make-A-Wish Foundation, who came to the show and whom we met afterwards, a lovely and wise young man.

Here is a link to the first official review, which includes an awesome photo gallery:
