About 20 years ago, my dad handed me Shadowland and said, "here, I think you'll like this." I did. Immensely. The k.d. lang lust has persisted ever since, giving me the opportunity to see her perform a few times including with the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra about 10 years ago. It was a perfect night, including my catcalls from the lawn (that I TRULY BELIEVE made k.d. giggle) and forcing Em to slow dance with me to k.d.'s version of A Kiss to Build a Dream On (which she originally sang with Tony Bennett).
The only other summer music plan we have is to see Idina Menzel with the National Symphony Orchestra (at Wolf Trap, of course) in August. Do you have any summer music plans?
