Handel Concert

This weekend, Young Stumbler #3 demonstrated her considerable talents again. This time it was a concert of the Messiah by Frederic Handel, who lived in the 18th century. The Messiah is an incredible piece blending of choral, vocalists and orchestra. Even more amazing is that Handel wrote it after having a stroke, which paralyzed the left side of his body, and further more he wrote it in only 21 days! It is highly recommended.

The Stumbler, still suffering from jet lag, had a little trouble staying awake at the beginning, despite Handel's genius and YS#3's talent. But about 1/3 of the way into the piece, the soprano vocalists started singing, and I was wide awake. It was an excellent experience.

Here is the only decent photo (and it's not great) I was able to take. Enlarge it and you can barely see YS#3.
