Well, THAT didn't take long...

As I saw at the tail end of an e-mail to the parish, Fr. Davis has already discovered some of the delights of the Seattle area:
And finally, the Seattle Symphony's Beethoven & Wine Festival runs from Wednesday through Friday of this week at Benaroya Hall. Starting at 6:15 PM each evening, you can sample up to four pours of Northwest wines for only $5. But better yet, somewhat abbreviated, no-intermission, all-Beethoven concerts begin at 7:30 PM for lower prices than would typically be the case. Moreover [...] you can get an additional 50% off! Cynthia, the children and I will be attending Wednesday night's concert (featuring the Piano Concerto No. 1 and Symphony No. 7) for only $4.50 each (+ the ubiquitous service fee)!! Featured Thursday evening will be Symphony No. 3 “Eroica,” while the festival will draw to a close Friday with the beloved Symphony No. 5. So for half the price of conforming to the ways of the world and bankrolling Hollywood's latest bilge, you can affirm Philippians 4:8 with timeless music from an orchestra that's one of the very best in the West in one of the most renowned concert halls in the nation. Selah.
Philippians 4:8   Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.
