I was so proud of my city Thursday night! Not only was I witnessing the premiere performance of our new Glendale Renaissance Orchestra on the lawn of the Americana at Brand (“Concert Review: Chill, spirited,” May 1), but I was also treated to two renowned artists performing a lovely variety of music.
