While searching the ‘net today for entertainment in Jackson, TN, I stumbled crossed a web page for The Jackson Symphony. Sure enough they had a 4-instrument string quartet playing today!
It was just down the road and only cost $10/ticket. So with a round-up and a contribution we spent $25 for about an hours worth of live music. Two violins, a viola and a cello. The theme was Bohemian Rhapsody!
The Program included;
- Quarter No.1 “From My Life” in E Minor (Smetana)
- String Quartet No. 12 “American” in F Major (Dvorak)
- Bohemian Rhapsody (Mercury, yes Freddie M from Queen)
We had so much fun. The music was great. The atmosphere was fun and I think we will do the Mozart program in April. This made me think again about learning to play music and making sure I work on that Mandolin.
