Κρατική Ορχήστρα Θεσσαλονίκης + Kee Marcello @ Θέατρο Γης, Θεσσαλονίκη, 09/07/2009

Ωραία ήταν χθες στο Θέατρο Γης.
Είχα πάει και πέρισυ στη συναυλία της Κρατικής Ορχήστρας Θεσσαλονίκης με την Alannah Myles (το περσινό post βρίσκεται εδώ) και μου είχε αρέσει, οπότε δήλωσα και φέτος παρών.
Φέτος, η ΚΟΘ κάλεσε τον Kee Marcello. Ο Kee Marcello είναι ο πρώην κιθαρίστας των Europe, ο οποίος πλέον κάνει σόλο καριέρα.
Το πρόγραμμα ήταν αρκετά ενδιαφέρον, ακούστηκαν διασκευές γνωστών κομματιών (Bohemian Rhapsody, Pinball Wizard, A Whiter Shade of Pale, Stairway to Heaven, Another Brick in the Wall, Smoke on the Water) και φυσικά το The Final Countown των Europe. Διευθυντής ορχήστρας ήταν ο Alexander Frey, ο οποίος μάλλον έκλεψε την παράσταση.
Αξίζουν πραγματικά συγχαρητήρια στην ΚΟΘ για την προσπάθεια που κάνει να προσελκύσει και ένα διαφορετικό κοινό. Και του χρόνου, ακόμη καλύτερα.


ΥΓ. Λογικά, δεν θα υπάρξει νέο post μέχρι τον Σεπτέμβριο μια και από σήμερα αρχίζει η ετήσια αποτοξίνωση μου από πληκτρολόγια και οθόνες (κοινώς, παίρνω άδεια). Σας εύχομαι λοιπόν, καλό καλοκαίρι, καλές βουτιές (σε καθαρές θάλασσες) και πολλές (και καλές) συναυλίες. Ραντεβού τον Σεπτέμβρη (δεν μπορούσα να μην το γράψω!)

Regina Spektor- Laughing With

No one laughs at God in a hospital
No one laughs at God in a war
No one's laughing at God when they're starving or freezing or so very poor

No one laughs at God when the doctor calls after some routine tests
No one's laughing at God when it's gotten real late and their kid's not back from that party yet

No one laughs at God when their airplane starts to uncontrollably shake
No one's laughing at God when they see the one they love hand in hand with someone else and they hope that they're mistaken
No one laughs at God when the cops knock on their door and they say "We've got some bad new, sir,"
No one's laughing at God when there's a famine, fire or flood

But God can be funny
At a cocktail party while listening to a good God-themed joke or
Or when the crazies say he hates us and they get so red in the head you think that they're about to choke

God can be funny
When told he'll give you money if you just pray the right way
And when presented like a genie
Who does magic like Houdini
Or grants wishes like Jiminy Cricket and Santa Claus

God can be so hilarious
Ha ha
Ha ha

No one laughs at God in a hospital
No one laughs at God in a war
No one's laughing at God when they've lost all they got and they don't know what for

No one laughs at God on the day they realize that the last sight they'll ever see is a pair of hateful eyes
No one's laughing at God when they're saying their goodbyes

But God can be funny
At a cocktail party while listening to a good God-themed joke or
Or when the crazies say he hates us and they get so red in the head you think that they're about to choke

God can be funny
When told he'll give you money if you just pray the right way
And when presented like a genie
Who does magic like Houdini
Or grants wishes like Jiminy Cricket and Santa Claus

God can be so hilarious

No one laughs at God in a hospital
No one laughs at God in a war

No one laughs at God in a hospital
No one laughs at God in a war

No one's laughing at God in a hospital
No one's laughing at God in a war

No one's laughing at God when they're starving or freezing or so very poor

No one's laughing at God
No one's laughing at God
No one's laughing at God
We're all laughing with God
