Arco Musica - Watching the Conductor


Two nights ago a string orchestra played in the church in the village of Gorbio. The 5 euros to enter goes towards the restoration of the facade of Eglise St. Barthélémy.

The group, made up of musicians of all ages, is called Arco Musica and they were astonishing. Beautiful music - we heard Mozart, Bach, Albinoni, Vivaldi, Grieg, Sibelius and so on.

The small photo shows the 1st violin about to give a note to the rest of the group so they can tune-up.

  5. I love classical music and play violin myself, too. I played in the 1st violin section in our high school orchestra but I was never "first chair" of the 1st violins! Tant pis!

  6. The fellow in back is not quite as attentive...but I bet he played like a dream once he turned to his music.

  9. Lovely all around. I too recently experienced beautiful music, of a different sort but nonetheless beautiful--Sting with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra at our wonderful Arlene Schnitzer Concert Hall in downtown Portland.
