For those who appreciate classical music

This piece was written for the organ and this girl does a beautiful job with it on the harp. I believe that Hank is an organist…I’d be curious to hear his take on it.

That is truly awesome KC. My sister does harp but doesn’t have enough dedication or lifetime to ever reach the level of Turk. We had a Sodomite picker here who might be in that same league he was really good.

I do a little Bach myself and even offered a couple of preludes to music director but he does not want as they are usually doing more modern stuff. I guess Session figures younger people don’t appreciate classical so my Bach stays at home; good exercise.

Oh BTW they show a little foot action. On the harp the pedals do not make a sound. They re-tension strings to raise or lower the pitch a half step I think, so each pedal has 3 positions.

I have enjoyed classical music my entire life. When I was a young child, my father played classical music records in our house and took me to concerts in New York City that performed them.

My husband and I had subscriptions to various symphonic orchestras during most of our marriage.

During the last month of my husband’s life I learned the benefits of music therapy. When hospice came to the skilled nursing facility to treat him there, I asked about their music therapy program and told them that my husband loved classical music. A few days later when I went to visit my husband he had a big smile on his face, in spite of all the pain he was in. He then said look what they gave me today and pointed to a CD player that had music from his favorite composers.
