TCHAIKOVSKY 1812 Overture
To start things off though there was a competition whereby peole had to get up on stage in order to whistle "i come from a land down under" as to win a stupid amount of prizes. This started last week when we came to Jazz in the Domain, another free concert that played, surprisingly enough, Jazz. To be honest there were some absolutely skilled whistlers out there.
Nic and Rob, our new housemates came along with us, as well as Catherine, Liz, Mike, and John, two lads who we met at the William Hotel pub.
Once the music started, albeit after a little rain, we were eating good food and drinking good wine. The 1812 overture ended with cannons firing in time to the music, and Jupiter by Holst ws amazing. As an encore, the orchestra played the John Williams classic Star Wars. The whole of the domain went mad when it was announced. To hear it at the cinema is great, on a CD is just as good, but when it was played live by one of the worlds best orchestra's, well it takes your breath away, knocks your socks off, and any other saying that you can think of. Magnificent. Truly Magnificent. We all left the Domain with a smile on our face.
