Caught in the Rain

Last night, Naomi and I went to an organ concert by Jan Kraybill at the Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts in Kansas City. What was unusual during the event was not that audience members forgot to turn off their cell phones, but the number of weather warnings the cell phones emitted. Just before the last number, security came on stage to stop the concert and to ask the audience to shelter in place as they had just received a tornado warning. As we were waiting the storm to pass, the Director of the Kansas City Symphony and Jan Kraybill came on stage to tell stories about their career and the history of the organ. When the warning was lifted, we were treated not only to the last number of the program, but also a rousing encore. Fortunately, the tornado never materialized. Click on the image for a larger view.
