Anyone have any big (or not so big) musical plans this weekend?

Maybe you are performing, maybe watching someone else, or maybe just having a lesson or kicking back and jamming with a few friends.

Lesson tomorrow first thing, and as the weather her will be wet, wet, wet! ( no doubt because a hose pipe ban has been announced this week), I guess I'll be able to get some serious practice at "the project" between wine breaksdancinbunny

If anyone is interested in a live symphony performance, Saturday April 21st at 8:00PM Eastern Standard time, the Detroit Symphony Orchestra is broadcasting a live performance for the world to see on webcast TV, it's Free and anyone can view it.

Go to http://www.dso.org/live  to view times in different cities and countries. In London, England the time is 1:00 AM Sunday.

It's the first and only symphony orchestra anywhere in the world to do live webcastinig.

I haven't seen it yet but I received an E-mail today regarding it.  I told Fiddlerman about it last week, not about tomorrow's performance but about the DSO doing live broadcasts.

You should post this info in the "UPCOMING EVENTS" area under the region for that area. Upper east coast I think it is.

Same goes for anyone else who might have something to share. Pick the region where it will be and we all can find it. A web cast is pretty much global but still the orchastra is in Detroit Mi so I guess it'd be ok to put it in there.

Thanks

Well, i'll tell ya cennyb, I looked for a different location to post it, but didn't see UP AND COMING EVENT"S.

I saw Terry's post asking what everyone was doing this weekend so this is where I put it. I realize the symphony is in Detroit, Michigan, USA, and I also realize that 99.9% of the member's here can't attend, so I kinda thought i'd post it so all member's could enjoy it if they wish, even you.

So sorry about putting it in the wrong place (not). Seein how you seem to be the only person here that seem's to think they have all the authority over matter's, then MOVE it or DELETE it or Delete my membership.  Do whatever you want Dennis, you are the man. I don't really care. You seem to know everything about everthing, sound, sound post's, string's etc. For someone who's only been playing a few month's you seem to be the violin GOD in this forum. Maybe you should start practicing and ease up on critisizing people and learn to play, "Somewhere under The Rainbow".

Oops, kinda not what I expected when I started this post
I'm sure 99% of what CdB writes is slightly tongue in cheek, that's just his way and he'll put me right if I am wrong, lol.
Life would be dull if we didn't have characters like him around, just like you Fiddlestix, are one of my favourite members and one of the people who always makes me sit back and think "OO! I never thought of it like that, eg. "What is the nearest part of the horse from where my bow hair came from, yeeuw!!"

Ok, rant over, hand-bags away, let's all go share a beer or a tune. Who's coming, I'm buying the first round!

I have decided to launch a new era in my musical career.  I need to broaden my horizons so I have chosen to learn something about the accordion.

Now I don't want any snickering at the video.  I picked up such an accordion for $1 yesterday at church rummage sale and I intend to really learn how to play it.

It has the word WOODSTOCK but that is Woodstock.com and NOT related to the real thing but that's OK for a buck.

Oliver, I can't wait to hear about your progress in this new venture. My husband's grandma has an old accordion in her house that she used to play years ago. I've been itching to play with it.

I love it 🙂 accordéon is part of my culture (the old Québec trio: violin, accordéon and wooden spoon lol) and I love it. You will have fun Oliver! My cousin was playing that instrument and I remember trying it when I was a teen but hers was a huge one and it was way too heavy to enjoy playing it. I didn't know they were making them all tiny and cute!

OK.

Hey, Oliver you might want to check out some Astor Piazzola , probably misspelled his name but I am a big fan of his music.

Yeah, Piazzola is a good name which I checked out on YouTube.  He is great but I do not aspire to that level.

Now it is true that little accordions are not for sale on FM.  For that reason I'm thinking of offering my own package for purposes of violin rehab episodes including a little instrument that does not need rosin, special environmental conditions, re-hairing, tuning or any other unreasonable demands.

I did mess with the little accordion over the week end and it was so much fun, it might be illegal.  However, today, it is violin business as usual after my fun frolic.
