Herolds' Hangout

Thoughts, Reminders, and Reasons to Brag...


Basking in Beethoven

Tonight, I attended a classical music concert with my parents. For the past year, I have been enjoying some audiobooks by Jeffrey Siegel. He performs famous pieces and gives background information to make the music more of a learning experience and forces the audience to experience the composers’ intent more meaningfully. The concert series are normally at the Scottsdale Center for the Performing Arts, but it is currently undergoing remodeling. Tonight, it was held at Pinnacle Presbyterian Church, in Scottsdale, which was very beautiful and tremendously added to the experience.

I am very compassionate while I listen to the music and life of Beethoven and I shed a few tears during tonight’s performance. I’m glad I have chronic allergies to use as an excuse!
