Attended the U of M opera last week, $20 tickets, even for children. Too much! -Doug, Duluth, MN

Yes, as does the fact I live in the western suburbs and do not like driving into Minneapolis at night, especially in Winter. Have you thought of holding concerts at different sites -- perhaps in churches or schools -- around the Twin Cities, so that Suburbanites don't have to travel to get there? -Michael Kenneth Ireland
