Snowbound Clevelanders jam in pizza joint

More mozzarella with your Mozart? Thanks to my friend Bruce Hodges, whose blog Monotonous Forest carries this story.   As everyone knows half of the US is enjoying arctic conditions, while much of Queensland was underwater or stormed on. The Cleveland Orchestra couldn't fly out to Chicago where their next scheduled concert was cancelled because of snow, so they jammed in a local pizza restaurant in Ann Arbor, Michigan, instead. And then who should turn up but Pierre Laurent Aimard, doing impromptu Brahms on a rinky tink piano! Read the whole article by following the link above.
