My husband was a music major in school.
He did singing, flute, trumpet, and theater.
He really enjoyed it and at one point in his life thought he was going to be a music teacher. He then changed courses and went into finances. It suits him better but he still has a soft spot for music. For his birthday I try to do something musical for him. We have gone to concerts all over the United States. Recently I remembered that I had a trip to Elgin, Illinois for work. Rather than burn a birthday gift, I thought I would just do a nice surprise for her. I convinced my husband to join me on my trip to Elgin. I then got tickets for the Elgin symphony orchestra. He loves orchestra music and they were doing holiday songs. I love getting into the Christmas spirit. It was the perfect blend of something we both enjoy. I was really glad that I did the gesture and didn’t tell him about it until that day. My husband was very excited to listen to good orchestra music. We both liked it so much that we agreed we should see a symphony more than once in a blue moon. The area of Elgin, Illinois actually offered us a lot to do on my work trip. I wouldn’t be opposed to going there again. It was a lovely experience. There are museums, shops, parks, and all sorts of other fun things for couples and families alike.
