A night with the orchestra

Last week girl received an invitation to see the Orchestre Philharmonique de Radio France perform at the Salle Pleyel and happily made good on the invite! As girl’s first orchestra experience in Paris, she was more than excited…especially when the seats were practically front row (thank you again!). Unfortunately, she missed the first performance – American violinist Hilary Hahn – because of work but the second half was absolutely spectacular! Composed by Serge Prokofiev during in 1944’s Soviet Russia, the piece was meant as a break from the fighting, to celebrate happiness and peace as the real victory of man. The musicians played with an unbreakable concentration and as an observer, seemed themselves like soldiers gearing up for battle. It was a remarkable experience and one to be repeated with boy!

  2. I’ve been studying architecture for over 20 years. It is safe to say that this building is the most aspiring one on the planet. Visit it once and you will agree with me!
