MUSIC – CEE’S BLACK AND WHITE CHALLENGE

Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge: Music – People, instruments, sheet music, audio devices

As it happens, I have a few things. I stayed with instruments, mainly because I like these three pictures best. But I have choirs, bands, singers, orchestras … and a pile of sheet music. Just in case this challenge comes up again, I’m ready!

    • The dulcimer IS a beauty with a rich tone. Chopin was every striving pianist’s best friend, especially the ubiquitous Nocturne in A minor. I think everyone learns it first. Is it the easiest nocturne maybe? Thanks. Brings back memories of my “musician” years.

  4. The second one.., the orchestra bass section, brings back some of the best memories of my life. My High School orchestra, the Great Neck Symphony and the Boro Park Symphony where I continued to play to keep my reading and bowing chops in shape. Thanks for that Marilyn. Great photos BTW.

    • Thanks Ben. I love the texture of the wood. I took the photos of the basses on the stage before the concert started, all the way from the back of the hall using the little Panasonic I sent you. I was so far away, I could barely tell what they were. That little camera takes amazing pictures 🙂

  5. Great photos. That is one thing I have avoided after being made to learn the violin when I have partial deafness in one ear. I.E. musical instruments. I could never tell if I hit the right notes or not. Not being the operative word here. To the torture of my family as my mother made me practise every night. Ah, the delights of childhood torture. I got my own back on my parents by torturing them with my screeches
