At length, someone in the audience said, Boston. Odetta replied, "Yes," in a tone that very much indicated that this was the wrong answer. She continued to scan the room.
At further length, someone else named the site --- the Berklee School of Music.
"That's right," said Odetta, repeating for emphasis, "a school of music".
Pause for effect.
"Y'all was terrible."
Things picked up after that.
