ULLR Outing at Sommerfest
With temperatures hovering around 100 degrees, 44 Ullrs assembled at Orchestra Hall for their annual excursion to Sommerfest.  We had planned to meet on Peavey Plaza but wisely decided to congregate inside (temperatures again!).  The staff at Orchestra Hall met us at the door early so that we could get a table in the Atrium.  There we put up our “balloons” so that the rest of the group could find us easily.  Music and dancing in the Atrium got all of us eager to attend the concert.  And what a concert it was!
The title was “A Night in the Tropics” featuring “hot” music from “hot” spots---Cuba. Brazil, Hawaii, Greece to name a few.  Beautiful graphics were projected on the wall behind the orchestra guiding participants through the presentations.  Charles Lazarus, renowned trumpeter, was the featured performer with renditions of familiar and classic jazz favorites drawing rounds of applause from the opening number to the last curtain call.  
We Ullrs like to end the Sommerfest evening with an after-concert libation in front of Brits across the Mall but construction all along that avenue moved us from our usual curb-side tables to Brits’ roof-top.  Luckily some young party-goers gave up their spot for us so we could continue our tradition of a “final one for the night”!   We toasted the Minnesota Orchestra, Charles Lazarus and all performers before heading home after a great evening.
