Shed & Symphony

Tonight we went to see the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra performing in Exeter. Prior to that we got about three quarters of the way through building our new garden shed, which amusingly appears to be a bit too small to fit our bikes in... but I'm sure the lawnmower will be happy.

  1. And which was the better experience.....?

    I like the BSO. For a regional orchestra they are pretty good. They're the orchestra in residence at the Anvil in Basingstoke, so we get to see them quite a bit. What was on? BSO plays Coldplay? Or something a bit more cultoooored?

  2. Nice one. I often plan my evenings off around when CBSO concerts are on, and go on a stand-by ticket for under 26s, haha! What did they play?

  4. Yeah twas - the clarinet soloist was v.good. An instrument I tried and failed to learn for a year... Enigma variations is just nice to chill out to which was v.cool.

    Last week Martyn Joseph, then that... next we want to find some cool jazz in Exeter.

  5. :) I pass a live jazz club on my way to the Symphony Hall in Birmingham for CBSO concerts, and usually think I should check it out sometime. But not enough to miss CBSO on a rare free evening!

    Pity you didn't keep on with the clarinet. Though I'd have suggested oboe... don't know why, I just see people as atuned to different instruments!

  6. My Dad played Clarinet... availability of the instrument was key. He then sold it and bought a bass guitar which is a bit more fun.... i stuck to Piano / Guitar.
