A visit to the new Calderwood Hall

The new wing of the  Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum opened about two weeks ago.  Ever since I heard about the new concert hall,  I wanted to see it and today was our chance.

We went to hear George Li play.  He’s a local (from Lexington, MA), played beautifully, and couldn’t have been nicer.  Here he is with Leo, who wanted to meet him.

You could hear a pin drop (or a cell phone ring, or a museum button drop, as the case may be).   The interior reminds me of an old opera house.

Leo, Sophie & Nigel

Can you find us?
