The Sound of Music


I looooove music! My range of taste covers from golden oldies till some of the current ones. I can’t stand noisy songs, and appreciate songs with good lyrics mostly.

One of my favourite past-times is to listen to good, live music. It need not be a concert or special event. It could just be a visitor who came by and tinkled the ivories while waiting for dinner or dessert. Yes, I enjoy live music.

Imagine my delight then when beautiful melodies and harmonies could be distinctively heard in our office!

I ran to the front door, threw it open and looked down (we’re on the third level)

What a glorious sight!

A professional vocal trainer and his team of violinists warming up for the evening’s programme. Oh, did I forget to mention that my office is located in a five-star hotel?Anyway, there he was, freshly flown in from England, going through the paces with the young performers of the music schools he’s been seconded to.

What joy. Absolute delight.

I went down towards the end of their rehearsal/warm up to chat with him, and to encourage him to do it more often!
