Classical Notes: July 26, 2007 Archive

That was the Springfield Elementary School Orchestra, Mr. Largo conducting

I may not line up for the very first screening tomorrow, but I fully expect to go see The Simpsons Movie before the weekend is out.

Is it safe to make that confession among classical music lovers?

I should hope so. I have evidence that there are classical fans on The Simpsons writing staff. Consider these lines from the episode that originally aired Feb. 8, 1998:

Homer: Just think. I turned to a cult for mindless happiness when I had beer all along.
Marge: Hmmm!
Homer: And you, Marge! The bringer of beer!
