From the time that I was very young, like most people, I have loved music. When I was nine, I started taking clarinet lessons and our family moved, putting an end to those. Then I began to take piano lessons when I was eleven and our house burnt down and that ended that, because we no longer had a piano. But at age 40, a dear friend gave us an old upright piano and I taught myself to play it Now I have a full-size keyboard, I only chord, but I have spent many enjoyable hours playing and singing.
Recently, my ten year old granddaughter sang in a 150 voice children s choir accompanied by the Winnipeg Symphony Orchestra. Pairing the pure voices of children with live symphony music was SO beautiful! I came away completely in love with live symphony music.
A few weeks back I mentioned that, for my birthday, my son and his wife had gifted us with tickets to a Steve Bell Concert, where he would be performing with the Winnipeg Symphony. Mr. Bell is from here in Winnipeg. He is a Gospel singer/songwriter whose music has been influenced by a visit to a monastery in India and other such experiences. We attended the concert/symphony on Saturday evening and it was amazing!!! I LOVE symphony music and I also very much enjoy Piano music and Steve Bells pianist, Mike Janzen, plays the most beautiful jazz piano I have ever heard. The band was made up of four pieces and they each one are experts on their instruments.
I hope you listen to at least one of the videos. The first one says that it was recorded with the Winnipeg Symphony Orchestra! This next one was with the Calgary Symphony Orchestra.
This last one is very moving. Do you enjoy music? If so, what kind? More often than not I have symphony music playing, Symphony Hall, on Sirius Radio is my favorite.
I love the look of pianos, don't you? You put a grand piano into a pretty room and it immediately makes the whole room more attractive.
I would love to have one, even if I did not play, they are so very beautiful.
It looks so lovely sitting between two seating areas like this.
Please be sure to tell me which kind of music you enjoy!
Enjoy your day and thanks for coming by!
