A Each of the three cities has an independent audience and an independent funding base; each budget is around 60 percent donated income and 40 percent ticket sales. And we can offer the performers a respectable aggregate fee for three concerts in three days, staying at the same hotel in San Francisco. Therefore everybody wins — performer, our organization, and (especially) the audiences. For example, in 2013 our Palo Alto audiences will enjoy both pianist Garrick Ohlsson and violinist Sarah Chang in recitals in a 300-seat hall. How often does that happen? Well, pretty much never.

The last dance of the night was Bill Engvall and Emma Slater doing a samba. It was a lot of fun, if not a precise samba. Julianne called Bill “the heart of the show,” and Bruno, in what he thought was a compliment, said, “It had everything you could wish for in a samba except timing and rhythm.” Carrie Ann wasn’t sure what kind of samba it was, but she said it was entertaining.
