The concert last night was fabulous! Loreena McKennitt's music is more than the words and music. It is the feeling, the story, the colors, the emotion, the experience. The music paints a soundscape and takes you on a journey. Molly and I enjoyed the eclectic audience and the beautiful old theater. It was a wonderful experience.
(Synesthesia note: The lighting effects for most of the pieces were more red, and most of the time the lighting effects fit the songs. However, for "The Lady of Shalot" I couldn't look at the stage with the red lighting because the song is blue and green with yellow shots of sunlight, not red!! The dissonance was a very strong feeling!)

A quote Loreena McKennitt shared last night at her concert:

“It is useful to remember that history is to the nation as memory is to the individual. As a person deprived of memory becomes disorientated and lost, not knowing where they have been or where they are going , so a nation denied a conception of the past will be disabled in dealing with its present and its future.” Arthur M Schlesinger Jr
