The Magic Flute

Musicians from the SF Opera visited the office today, and played the Overture of The Magic Flute with musically inclined co-workers on-stage. They went on to tweak the arrangement a bit, discussed how the orchestra comes together in rehearsals, talked about the role of conductor, ... along the way did a working rehearsal right there in the tech talk area. Super-interesting to watch and listen to.

A co-worker of mine invited me to come and watch. I'm glad I did. The music was beautiful and I continue to be blown away about how good a classical orchestra can sound in even fairly utilitarian spaces

I feel like we should really visit the Opera in the city some time...
