St. Mark's Passion- Disney Concert Hall Trip
Peace peace, so me and the Queen went to the Disney Concert Hall over the weekend, she turned the big 25 and it was breath taking son. The ambiance, the architecture by the late Frank Gehry was astonishing, and the musicianship, makes you ask yourself, why the fuck do I even listen to boom bap? The music was composed by Osvaldo Golijov, and conducted by Maria Guinand. From the opening phrase the piece chronicled the trials of the Jesus Christ all the way up to his crucifixion. The enchanted bounce of the congas infused with the melodious strum of each string instrument played with your emotions and forced you to visually put yourself in that time period and smell the air, feel the wind, see the sandy mountain regions, and feel the suspense of the experience. Happy belated birthday Queen! Experience the Disney Concert Hall if you already haven't.
