Winter Pattern

Friday night, I did a volunteer stint with
where I was privileged to hear percussionist 
Dame Evelyn Glennie perform.
The piece was the U.S. premiere of
Concerto for Aluphone by Anders Koppel.
The aluphone is an instrument invented
by marimbist Kai Stensgaard and  Michael Hansen,
an engineer who runs a design and manufacturing
business. The instrument made its debut at
the Opening Ceremonies for the 2012 London Olympic
 Games with Dame Evelyn as soloist.
The picture above made me think of a musical
staff, with the ice as bright, bell-light tones,
appropriate for the coming season.

Thank you, William. I love the music, too. The concerto is on You Tube but, try I as I might, I could not get it to post on my blog. However, it is on the aluphone website.
