It has been a long hard week, filled with the stress of academia and loads of assignments!! To de-compress before diving back into the huge pile of weekend reading and assignments, my Ukrainian friend Irynka and I decided to attend a classical concert at the Fisher Center inside Bard College.
The Richard B. Fisher Center for the performing arts, is a very beautiful contemporary building and home to the American Symphony Orchestra (the Orchestra that played tonight). People come from New York city (and neighbouring towns) to attend concerts there, and it is affiliated to top music intitutions in the city.
My spirit was greatly up-lifted for the duration of the concert and beyond. The acoustics was fabulous and the Orchestra simply amazing! Now I can plunge into the coming week with renewed vigour.
