A Wee Bit Of Culture
On Thursday night we did something a wee bit different.
Well, different for us anyway!!!!
A few weeks ago one of my sis-in-laws had asked if we fancied going to see an evening of Tchaikovsky, well of course we said yes please.
So on Thursday, along with Danny, my two sis-in-laws and their husbands, three nieces and one boyfriend, we met up in Glasgow.
First we went for a very tasty Italian meal, I had chicken milanese with spaghetti napoli and for dessert I had tiramisu - yummy. Have I ever said how much I love tiramisu, 'cause I really do :))
I should really have taken my camera to do some foody pictures - but I'm afraid I didn't.
Anyway after a very pleasant dinner we walked along to the Glasgow Royal Concert Hall. I have never been to a classical concert before and didn't really know what to expect. But you know what, I really enjoyed it and I was surprised at how many of the pieces
I recognised. They played everything from Swan Lake, Piano Concerto No.1 (which I remembered loving at school), Nutcracker Suite and the finally of course the 1812 Ouverture.
Now who doesn't love that rousing piece and at the finale fireworks were going off - I of course added to the volume by giving a shriek of fright - how embarassing - you can take me nowhere, lol.
All in all it was a great night and I enjoyed my wee bit of culture.
