Baby, The Stars Shine Bright Party

My trip to Japan to meet with the potential music act for our 2014 convention turned into a fantasy-like event of a trip when I decided to follow the white rabbit down the rabbit hole. In this case, the white rabbit was Fumiyo Isobe and the rabbit hole was a cruise ship called the Symphony Classica.
