the symphony is definitely one of the most unique experiences, listening, watching, and daydreaming of the mysterious. what a concentrated group of musicians, and eloquently skilled at handling their instrument alone, and as a whole. this German Requiem brought joy, thoughts of ancient songs and hymns. a pure voice from a choir of about 100 singers and 2 opera performers brought to life the instrumental sounds. i kept thinking how wonderful it would be to perform on stage. it truly was learning and experiencing culture of the elite, but my tickets were free.
