UMC St Radboudconcert

Yesterday the student orchestra of the UMC St. Radboud performed their annual concert. All employees of the UMC were invited to enjoy this event for free. Now you might think that a concert for free cannot be a good concert, but now for the second year in a row, this orchestra has proved to be of excellent quality.

The score was
Bach/Stokowski Stocatta and Fuga
Violin concerto in A by Glazunov
and finally
The Planets by Gustav Holst

The best part was the violin concert, and the magical ending of the Planets...

Programming for music

I am currently working in my spare time on a web project for Roskilde Festival which I volunteered for through the Roskilde Festival homepage. In return, on top of the honour of having contributed to the smooth execution of the best music festival in Europe, I get a free ticket to the festival.

The festival has lots of positions for volunteers every year, you can find them by checking out their website under 'jobs'.

Wednesday salsa

I went to the Ripley-Grier studios where I did a private lesson in spinning and styling on2 with Cynthia La China. That was really the worth it. Cynthia is very good at noticing points for correction while smiling and giving encouraging comments at the same time.
Straight after that, only stopping for something to eat, I went to LQ (the former Latin Quarter) to dance and watch Eddie Palmieri perform live.

After 26 years of never owning a stereo system, or anything to play music not including my computer, I have bought myself a set of surround speakers and an amplifier at the new years sale. The long-term plan is to make a home cinema complete with projector and silver screen. More on that later...

Next step will probably be to expand my music collection beyond 20 CDs and 1 DVD. I am not joking.

Introducing Bowie

To my immediate despair I learned that my younger sister had no idea who David Bowie is. I instructed her to go to the first music store she came by and buy a David Bowie greatest hits album. A few hours later, she was the happy owner of The Platinum Collection.

Listening to it right now...

Tango Orkestret

My sister revealed to me yesterday the contents of my birthday present that she has been saving for me for two months now. It is a CD with Tango Orkestret! It is such a wonderful present that I could not guess it and I did not even think of writing Tango Orkestret on my wish list.
Now I just have to wait for an opportunity to receive my present from my sis, in the meantime I have to make do with the music samples on their homepage.
