What was your first concert experience?

The first concert I attended was to see Kyung Wha Chung perform as a soloist in the South Bank Centre when I was around 7 years old. If I'm honest, the thing I most remember is that we bumped into her in the car park afterward and I remember that she asked to see the hands of my sisters and myself. She correctly guessed that my sisters both played the violin, but when she looked at mine, she immediately said I should play the cello! I was so thrilled, as I had just switched from the violin to the cello and was absolutely loving it!
