Last night Fidelity sponsored MS Night at the Pops which basically means they gave tickets to the Greater New England MS Society for a discounted price. So my mom and I were able to attend and sit in really good seats for a great price!
My mom and I posed by the stage during intermission. I wanted some instruments in the picture! If you are wondering what is on my mom's arm under her sweater it is a brace. She fell and broke her shoulder about 2 weeks ago while watching Peyton and Ella. So now she has to wear the brace for another 4 weeks! She was a good sport to get dressed up and come out. Thankfully my very generous dad drove us to Symphony Hall and picked us up afterwards!!
For those of you who have never been to Symphony Hall it is beautiful. On the main floor they set up little round tables for people to sit at. Then you can order food and drinks from the servers. It is really fun.
They had really cool lights that looked like fireworks. It was really pretty.
Last nights special guest was Idina Menzel. Before you say "who the heck is she" let me tell you b/c I'm sure you'll know who she is! Idina was Maureen in Rent and Elphaba in Wicked (two of my FAVORITE musicals)! Recently she was in the show Glee too! Idina sang several songs and has a beautiful voice. She is rather quirky and told some funny stories in between songs. It was a lot of fun. This was the best picture I could get of her due to the funky lights they had on and it didn't come out great. But you get the idea.
It was a great night. Only my 2nd time ever seeing the Pops (I went last year to MS Night w/ Michelle). The Pops really are fun to see and hear and I recommend going if you've never been. I'm glad the MS Society makes these opportunities available to us.
