The Magic of an Orchestra Concert
But it's more than that. There is a magic around an orchestra concert that I can't explain. It's almost a spiritual experience and I love the rush of it when the music just envelopes you and overwhelms you. It gives me goosebumps just to think about it.
I tried to explain it to a friend who'd never been to an orchestra concert and I couldn't even begin to fathom how to explain the incredible experience.
So I'm off. Off to enjoy a night listening to the Cleveland Orchestra play Mozart's inimitable Requiem. And it may take me awhile to come down from that peak.
Oh, and that friend? I'm taking her to hear Prokofiev's Cinderella at the end of the month.
