So my head did not explode the way I said it would

I had one of those NYC crazy moments last night, the kind that make my jaw drop. I got backstage to be introduced to Chris Thile last night, but that wasn’t the craziest part. After we had been introduced, I turn around and he’s talking to Renee Fleming. My jaw dropped and I may have kind of freaked out a little. I turned to my friend and tried to whisper in my tiniest voice, “That’s Renee Fleming”. And she didn’t even know who that was. I don't think anyone else there knew who she was really, well except for Chris Thile.

And after we left I had to call my mother right away. I had a feeling that a musicologist would appreciate such a thing. And also I think it's kind of cool that Renee Fleming would come see this band that I love so much.

And the setlist:
11th reel
Wayside (back in time)
Punch Bowl
1st movement
Ocean of diamonds
It’ll happen
Watch at Breakdown
Heart in a cage
3rd movement
4th movement
Brakeman’s Blues

Poor Places
Molly and the Tenbrooks

And really now, how can I leave when things like this happen?

Renee Fleming is Awesome so therefore would obviously have good taste in music. Maybe you should start listening to opera...
