Austin IS the live music capital of the world

Rod and I had quite an exposure to what Austin has to offer in the way of live music, but it was quite different than we expected.
We started off our morning at a different church than we've gone to in the past, St. Theresa's.

Well, let me tell you, we got quite lucky. It just so happened the parish was celebrating their 40th anniversary and mass was being con-celebrated by the Bishop of Austin and 9 other priests.
St.Theresa's has a colorful history, which the bishop eloquently related. There was a full 25 piece orchestra and 30 member highly rehearsed choir.
Mass concluded with a rousing rendition of Beethoven's Joyful, Joyful We Adore Thee.
From there we headed to a downtown legend, Stubbs' BBQ,

where we had front row seats for brunch and the music of the Gospel Silvertones, Doesn't get any better. "Jesus is good to me. AMEN"
