Reflections on a Wandering Life.....

The State Administration of Foreign Experts Affairs bussed us to a concert by the Beijing Symphony. Hard to beat a good symphony. And I really like the Forbidden City Music Hall. It isn't too large, and is designed in such a way that virtually every seat is a good seat. The last time I was here was for Handel's "Messiah."

You know, it really is hard to beat a good symphony. There was one piece they played called "Ode to the Red Flag" that was nothing to write home about, which is why I don't have anything to say about it. But most of the concert was Tchaikovsky, Mendelssohn, and Strauss. And I can't imagine a better place to hear it than at the Forbidden City Music Hall.
