The Angel Orensanz Foundation is lit up beautifully. Colors change from blue to orange, red to purple as the white chairs are filled with elegantly dressed men and women who whisper comments back and forth about the elaborate atmoshphere.
Soon enough the house is full and the show is about to begin, so every guest sits still and quiet in anticipation. The conductor calls for complete silence and the concert begins. First the tchelos, smooth, slow, and soothing to the ear. Next the violins join in perfect harmony. The music is calm, peacefull and entrancing untill a sworm of new instruments invade. The room becomes a battlefeild of sounds manipulating the emotions of the guests with each cord. The orchestra is at their peak and are showcasing each instuments almightly power. The flutes however, are dancing around the sounds as if they were adding a special playfulness to the bold performance.
The skiled director conducts with feircefullness and grace with his wand. It is a sound that is best described in its presence.The concert has many different parts, but no space between them, just the ruffling of papers from the musicians changing sheets.
The acustics of Angel Orensanz Foundation is great and the music travels without a problem throughout the building.What once used to be a synagogue has held so many events, including many other Sympho concerts.
When the orchestra completes their final cord and their arms fall to their side the conductor invites the guests to the balcony level to enjoy complimentry wine, champagne and finger foods. The chatter begins again, except this time it is about the speactacular preformance they had just experienced.
