Orchestra Concert

I have been itching to go to one of the many concerts, shows and attractions that are constantly being held here in Granada. Whether at the Teatro de Isabel la Católica, Palacio de Los Congresos, or Auditorio Manuel de Falla, there are many different concert halls that host incredible music, dance and theater shows. So when my friend came up to me and mentioned that she was interested in going to an orchestra concert in a couple weeks and if I would want to go, I immediately and enthusiastically accepted the invitation and made plans to go get tickets together before they ran out. downloadThe concert was by the New Philharmonic Orchestra of Hamburg and it would be held in the Auditorio Manuel de Falla, a concert hall right next to the Alhambra. The show was absolutely incredible! The first half was “Four Seasons” and the lead violinists was ridiculously talented. He was rocking and moving with the music, so forcefully at times that it was very entertaining to just watch him alone! During intermission, I even decided to splurge a bit and buy their CD. The second half of the concert was more of orchestra tango music, something I was unfamiliar with, but I liked it very much still. After the show, we were able to go up and meet the musicians in the lobby. They spoke German and Dutch, so we had to communicate in English. It’s incredible how many different languages are exchanged in Europe, something I am not used to coming from North America. We had such a great time that we decided to buy tickets for another upcoming show, Swan Lake Ballet in mid-November – can’t wait!
