Concert Trip

Tonight kit_ping and I went to University of the Pacific, our alma mater, for a concert celebrating the 125th anniversary of the music conservatory. They were playing Beethoven's Ninth which I think is one of the most powerful pieces of music ever written. It's terrific to hear it live, too; I find it fascinating to watch the musicians during the fast and intricate exchanges. The conductor was quite into the emotion of it, too... So much that he was bouncing on the balls of his feet and, to all appearances, one good whisper of wind from toppling completely off the podium. Fortunately, he had good balance. Quite the enjoyable outing for the evening!
