One of my most important personal mantras is "Do not take yourself too seriously." In this spirit, I present to you Recession 2008: "Which Classical Composer Would Hypothetically Survive and Who Would Need a Government Bailout, The Tournament."
A recent concert-going experience caused a mix of emotion for me: pleasure, frustration, and ultimately boredom. It then forced me to ask the question: what's wrong with clapping between movements at a classical music concert?
The WXXI Tour of the Music Capitals of Europe begins Thursday as we leave Rochester for Vienna. I'm hoping to provide some pictures of the group, some of our destinations and also provide some audio. What will emerge depends a lot on what I'm using to create the blog. The pictures will be transferred from a Kodak Z1015 to my ASUS Eee microcomputer. I'm still working on using a BLUE 'Snowball' usb microphone to provide podcasting during the trip. I hope you can bookmark this page and check back occasionally to see how we're doing!
