May the good luck spread to you
This post is intended to spread positive vibes and good luck around. May you catch some of these.
This morning, just out of fun, I called in to the Symphony 92.4 FM call-in contest. The first two times that I tried to call the hotline, I could not get through. Anyway, I decided to stick to my usually strategy, to call at least three time before giving up. And when I made my third attempt, I got through!
As such, yours truly is one of the lucky winners of a pair of complimentary tickets to an upcoming Singapore Symphony Orchestra's concert: Stirrings of Youth.
I'm looking forward to listen to Vladimir Feltsman play on the piano. I've heard him on one occasion, and he looked very cool when he plays the piano. Debussy's Prelude to the Afternoon of a Faun is also something worth listening for because it is seldom played live in concert. I am looking forward to listen to Lü Jia's interpretations of this well-known Debussy's work. I don't know much about Schumann's Symphony No. 4 in D minor, but the very fact that one of my favourite composers, Brahms, was in some ways influenced by Schumann, makes this Symphony a work that I would be keen to listen to.
So with good luck, I have got myself complimentary tickets to listen to some good music. Maybe one thing to learn is, don't give up too early, do make enough attempts.
May the good luck spread to you. Good luck to you.
