    • If you had to sit right next to that ear-piercingly high-pitched noise coming from violins all the time, you’d be deaf too.

    • As one of the violists who sat next to Wendy at the performance, I can assure you that she played beautifully. I would suggest, however, that your unfortunate attempt at humor was quite “tone deaf” although, of course, your decision to post anonymously is wholly understandable.
