After last year's concert had to be moved inside due to bad weather, but this year, we had just perfect weather. The theme of the concert was "Pomp and Pirates"; it's a family concert, so children were most welcome and no-one complained if they were running around dancing or asking questions about the music or the instruments. The orchestra played Beethoven, pieces from the operas Nabucco and Aida, Strauss' Egyptian March, and many more. At the end, the kids got little surprises. We enjoyed ourselves so much, and I was happy to see the hubby enjoying himself playing again.
