See The Music

Welcome, I couldn’t pass up but to enter the Round Robin Photo Challenges on the theme of ‘See the Music’ this time around.  I missed out on the last challenge over Easter holiday.

Music, particularly classical, is a great source of comfort to the mind and soul.  I’ve become passionate, engaged and involved in it at an early age.  Over the years, I had listened to many amazing street musicians during my travels.  Most people don’t realize some of the best music is from street performers.

This solo guitarist played for a huge crowd in Chatswood, New South Wales, a couple of years ago.  He is a very confident player with a natural gift for the instrument.  Listening to him was a real treat.

As I explored the streets of Frankfurt, Germany last October, I stumbled across this young man.  His music stole my heart; I stayed for a long while until the late afternoon rain started to pour.

Two thumbs up to these brass players in Heidelberg, Germany.

Once in a blue moon, I do treat myself to High Tea.  I was at this hotel lounge in Hong Kong last week and listened to some very fine classical pieces. 

Munching on afternoon goodies, writing my journal, listening to these great performers played was indeed heaven on earth.  I’m truly Blessed!

Last but not least, presenting a very talented young girl who is musical, loves to paint and dance as well.   My beloved niece, Veonie.  She will turn 13 comes September, the Gem of the family.

Music – the universal language, a powerful form of expression and communication for all nations.  Let’s continue to play and sing….

Hats off to the Musicians!
