Inspirational Quote of the Day

inspirational quote

“Those who enjoy their own emotionally bad health and who habitually fill their own minds with the rank poisons of suspicion, jealousy and hatred, as a rule take umbrage at those who refuse to do likewise, and they find a perverted relief in trying to denigrate them.”

― Johannes Brahms

Awwwwww…..These Are Two Cute to Pass Up

I wish my girls were smaller so I can get them one of these pianos. 🙁 i learned how to play a piano at an early age, so having a piano in my home is a must. These toy pianos are a great way to get your child started in music and maybe spark a talent that would’ve probably not emerged until the child was older.These toys are classics and a must have this holiday season on your shopping list.

Born to a toy making family in Wurtenberg, Germany, Albert Schoenhut (1848-1912) began making toy pianos at a young age. His creations were more than playthings. They stayed in tune and were accompanied by sheet music. Today, his legacy continues. The modern Schoenhut uses many of Albert’s original designs while adding new colors and styles each year.

One Ticket to See the National Festival Chorus and Millikin University Choir at Carnegie Hall on March 25 (Up to 56% Off)

Choral music developed in ancient Greece as a way for people to honor Zeus and make statue-carving montages seem more epic. Add a Herculean soundtrack to life with this GrouponLive deal to see the National Festival Chorus and the Millikin University Choir at the Stern Auditorium/Perelman Stage inside Carnegie Hall on Sunday, March 25, at 8:30 p.m. Choose from the following options:

  • For $25, you get one ticket for dress-circle seating (a $50 value).
  • For $40, you get one ticket for second-tier box seating (an $80–$90 value).
  • For $45, you get one ticket for parquet seating (a $90 value).

Amid the golden accents and ivory hues of the Carnegie Hall’s Stern Auditorium/Perelman Stage, Dr. Brad Holmes, who led the Millikin University Choir to the ACDA’s 2011 National Conference, guides audiences through psalms and folk songs spanning a timeframe from the Renaissance to today. The Millikin University Choir’s 55 students begin the evening by performing contemporary composer John Rutter’s take on Cantate Domino, followed closely by soprano soloist Sarah O’Neill stepping up to sing Ericks Ešenvalds’s layered choral arrangement of “Amazing Grace.” Dr. Holmes then turns his baton to the National Festival Chorus, which sings through classic works by Handel, Brunner, and Stroope to warm hearts and rekindle memories of wild nights on the a capella circuit.

The evening wraps up with the strings and reeds of the Americas High School Orchestra and the Scarsdale High School Wind Ensemble. Up-and-coming musicians whirl through the tumultuous tunes of Richard Meyer’s Bailes para Orquesta, then promenade at a more stately tempo for the first movement of Tchaikovsky’s Serenade for Strings.
