Disney Hall Concert

At the end of summer, my family and I went to see a concert at the Disney Hall.   Unlike the other stages with the orchestra in the front and seating in back, the Disney hall is a round circular hall that has seats all around it.  It is also has an interesting shape from the outside.    Disney Hall construction started in 1994 and finished in 2003.  The project was launched in 1992, when Lilian Disney, widow of Walt Disney, donated $50 million.   The Disney Hall has an amazing acoustic sound so even thought there weren't a lot of musicians, there was a lot of sound.

The Palpiti Arts (the name of the program) supports musicians ages 19-32 and invites then to come from different countries to perform in the U.S. One of the violin soloists, Pavel Sporcl, had a blue violin specially made for him by a Czech violin maker Jon Spidlen. My favorite piece  played that evening, Minimax, was by Paul Hindemith and this piece made everyone laugh.  It was a parody on military music and had some funny sounds and funny interactions between the different instruments.  The name Minimax came from combining the name of Prince of Furstenbuer two pet names, Maxi and Minzi.

    1. Dear Grandma Mila and Grandpa Isay,

      Thank you for your comment. Disney Hall is quite a sight looking at it from both the inside and outside. What I especially liked was that every musician was wearing a gorgeous outfit of all different colors.


  2. Dear Miriam,
    I found your trip really interesting and I have also visited a really wonderful hotel called The Fonten Bleu,
    which is in Miami. Have you ever heard of it?
    Another exciting place to visit is the Warner Bros Studio to see the making of Harry Potter.
