One of the things we talked about was what kind of music they liked to listen to - and interestingly enough to me, classical wasn't one of the things on the list. I listen to the weirdest mix of things in my own life. Classical, of course, but I also really like Taylor Swift. I like Celtic-inspired music, so I listen to bands like Flogging Molly, Enter the Haggis, and Great Big Sea. I also like a lot of local indie artists that my sister Margaret takes me to see such as Taylor Carson and Laura Tsaggaris. But classical music has always had a certain pull for me.
So, for the music lover who doesn't love classical music yet, I'm starting this blog series and I hope this will introduce you to at least ONE classical work that you like, and possibly more.
I'm really passionate about classical music, and I really do think it still deserves a place on our mp3 players, our hard drives, in our cd collections, and in our hearts. I hope I'll convince some of you of that, too.
