    Malvern's Bio:
    I have heard that the average human being uses 10% of their brain's potential. Whether that's true or not, this blog is a mirror of at least part of my brain's functionality and activity. It is an outlet through which I share my experiences and escapades here at CSS. I hope that in between the mixed metaphors and rambling in my posts, you find something valuable. I have an overwhelming interest learning new things and expanding my horizons (which is why I am here). Wait, I just lost my train of thought... Welcome to my 'Pensieve' ~ thinking out loud..

Duluth Superior Symphony Orchestra: GODS AND MYTHS CONCERT

When we were volunteering on Community Day, I expressed my interest in classical music and performances during a conversation I had with some friends. The result – I got a free ticket to a Duluth Entertainment Convention Center (DECC) concert organized by the Duluth Superior Symphony Orchestra (DSSO), where a masterpiece by Wagner was being played! So, last night, instead of going to the SnoBall semi-formal dance in the Reif Gymnasium, I went to  the concert which was oddly and interestingly dubbed ‘Gods and Myths’. The concert was a majestic performance of The Ring of the Nibelung, an engrossing composition by Wagner that unravels the tale of a powerful ring, which was Tolkien’s inspiration for The Lord of the Rings. It was preceded by Silvestre Revueltas’ Sensemayá, another thrilling performance.

Surprisingly, there were a lot of CSS professors and faculty at the Symphony Hall and some were actually part of the well-dressed ensemble that were playing. I am thankful for the opportunity that I got to be at the concert, for the first time, and to listen live to two of the best performances in classical music history.
