When do you get to hear 13th Century vocal music performed professionally in Grace Cathedral? I can already feel the goose bumps. A rare and delectable treat.

Excerpt Body: 

Wayne Shorter is my favorite sax player EVER. But it's his beautifully constructed compositions that get more and more creative as time passes and evoke raw energy from his band. I saw him a few years ago and it was one of the best concerts I have ever been to. Hands down.
