Tea & Symphony, February 16, 2014

What a superb concert. Thanks to everyone involved.
I was going to mention my favourite soloists but my wife Margaret said it wouldn’t be fair.
The selection of music was excellent.
How lucky we are to have so many talented musicians performing in Sooke.
The subject of acoustics came to my mind.
Each performer was crystal clear to the audience yet in such a bizarre space.
Room extensions going off in different directions, corridors, a high roof, concrete and no baffles .
Why did it sound so clear?
Sound experts say good acoustics are still more of an art than a science, or just plain luck.
Builders often don’t get it right even after spending millions on a new concert hall.
Was it the way the tables were arranged or was it because they cut the crusts off the sandwiches ?
Who knows ?
— David Lintern (former Sooke Philharmonic Society President)

  1. Indeed Tea and Symphony was a wonderful event! I loved everything about it. What a perfect opportunity to showcase the multitalents of the soloists and the rest of the players. Thanks Norman and crew!!
