Little Deniz – 6 months old when the photo was taken- immensely enjoyed the Foxtrot and Mendelssohn’s third by Houston Symphony last June, 2010.

I had such a wonderful time at the Independence Day concert! It had been quite a while since the last time I went to see the Houston Symphony so it was literally a breathtaking experience. Listening to sentimental patriotic songs and viewing the gorgeous fireworks display made the Fourth of July this year a night to remember!

I’ve been a Russophile for years, so I was counting down the days until the Houston Symphony played Tchaikovsky at the Miller Outdoor Theatre. To my delight, I noticed that the International Space Station (ISS) would fly overhead during the performance! As the moment drew near during the concert, I was focused on the symphony and almost forgot to look at the night sky. But, suddenly, the ISS flew overheard. It was truly magical to see the ISS while enjoying Tchaikovsky. I was floating 3 feet above the lawn. It took all my willpower to take my eyes off the ISS and snap a photo!
