Portsmouth Institute, Day 2 Concert

Among the many great pleasures of the Portsmouth Institute conferences is the musical performances, thus far conducted by former Portsmouth Abbey music director Troy Quinn. This year’s performance was no exception.
The aesthetic bonus of a windy thunderstorm rolling by outside doesn’t quite convey in the video, but in any event, if one is in need of evidence of reality outside the material world, such concerts provide just that.
Aaron Copland, “Appalachian Spring Suite”

Jean Sibelius, “Andante Festivo”

Arthur Honegger, “Pastorale d’été”

Samuel Barber, “Adagio for Strings”

Helen do you also remember when Rwanda ran away with Rwalter?
Incidentally, Wagner was performed in Israel last year for the first time. I confess to being a “ring roid”.
