Geneva, Switzerland, taken on March 23, 2013
One of the reasons I like watching street artists perform because often they look like they’re having a lot of fun. Take this group of medical students from Porto, for example. Taking some time off from saving lives and performing to earn some extra cash for their expensive tuition (why they were in Geneva I had no clue), they formed a nice little orchestra and amused many passersby, including our group. Some talent they have – we certainly had fun watching them!

Last year I had the excellent opportunity of listening to Haydn’s “The Creation”, one of the most well-known musical masterpieces in history. The instrumentation, the choir, and the solo vocals were impeccable. Let the harmony fill the air!
I work in a building right next to the gorgeous Wellington Church and tonight was the first time I went inside – for the Night & Day Concerts by Candlelight, presented by the Scottish Ensemble. Cold evening, but the cozy atmosphere inside the church and the lovely music warmed me up right away 🙂
It’s been a while since I’ve gone to see an orchestra, and I was so excited to finally see Sarasate’s Carmen Fantasy! The concert hasn’t started yet, but the bass is ready for a good show!
Second musical instrument post in a row. I went to see a Berlioz/Beethoven concert today at Palais des Sports. Here the musicians are warming up, preparing to play, but the harp player hasn’t arrived yet.
