  1. I enjoyed the show immensely, and one piece in particular stood out for me. It was performed probably towards the middle of the show, and began with Anthony Falanga using the bow on his bass. The piece sounded so familiar, I’m wondering if it was in a commercial or movie? Does anyone know the piece I’m trying to describe? Thanks!
