Happy Monday! The trees are all full of blossoms and I’m hoping to get out shooting more than I have been able to lately. I bought a NEW camera (old one died)…and one thing leads to another because my old version of photoshop apparently was too old and I had to upgrade it too. (Yeah, I know…Boohoo! Right?)
Anyway…here’s a couple of other miscellaneous/random things I gotta share:
I love lists and I love reading, so I really enjoyed this TedTalk: Ann Morgan’s year of reading a book from every country in the world. I could see myself venturing out on this type of project!
AND…I recently had a friend who was preparing to be a guest on a classical radio program, so she ask me (and others) what our favorite piece was that we playing in our high school orchestra. Most of us mentioned Dvorak’s New World Symphony (Symphony No. 9). I listened to her radio program, and then they played this piece. It brought back such memories! Good stuff!…especially the 4th movement! BUT…I just about laughed my head off when I found this YouTube video of the 4th movement! You’ve gotta watch at least the first minute of this video. Haha! I don’t know how the musicians could keep a straight face and it’s a good thing the conductor had his back to the Pope and all the nuns and bishops…because…well – you’ll see 🙂
You should also watch around the 8:48 minute mark too because that is the AWESOME horn part!
Have a terrific day! Do something NEW!
Wow that video is amazing! That conductor must have burned a lot of calories! It’s incredible how an orchestra can pull together so many sounds – very impressive.
Wow! That would take some getting used to as the musician. He is really into his conducting. 😉
