Chamber orchestras in LA, Houston revel in World Series-inspired “Take Me Out to the Ballgame” rivalry

It started with Michael Thornton, Principal Horn of the LA Chamber Orchestra, doing his one-man, four-part rendition of “Take Me Out to the Ballgame.”  The social media folks at LACO tweeted it out with a cheeky  question directed at Houston’s River Oaks Chamber Orchestra:  “You got anything?”

Soon after, ROCO tweeted this retort, featuring Matthew McClung, their principal percussionist:

Go Dodgers!
