for my brother, the cello man



check this out this is cool, simultaneous life cast around the globe, synchronized by some freaks with a mixing board somewhere in the US, everybody is chipping in, all the tramps and street musicians, a choir from Africa, a cellist from Russia and many more... (uTube link)
This is pretty amazing stuff...

pfff..yea I bet. I forwarded that vid link you sent my through Facebook to some of my other Facebook and blogger compadres. I actually do not do much on Facebook (as in, give 'plants' etc or do any of the quizzes) but THAT was a worthwhile video to watch.
I just saw one of the co-directors being interviewed on/by Bill Moyers a month ago or so..I don't remember when...and when I saw it on tv I had intended to post on it but never got around to it..
aaah..secondhand information, aren't blogs loverly for that? Spread that 'secondhand' virus..
btw...are you still planning to go upstate for training?

Yes Ingrid, my courses start Jan 20th at the Community college in Hudson NY. A modest start - but all I need is a certificate....

I heard it from Ingrid first too, but I'm getting old, so it seems new everytime. Very fine thing, isn't it? (The music, not me getting old)

Ingrid said...

Zee..you're a great artist but as artists go..you'll always need a 'dang' certificate of sorts.. (can you tell I've been in TX for a while [g])
Gary..it was Zee who sent me this video via Facebook and then I sent it around..cannot claim first knowledge on this one..the music is pretty cool..considering these are regular singers as opposed to famous singers...this means so much more, who needs/wants fame just for performing? If it is in your blood that's what you'll do no matter what..
