Just because I feel like it.

I find that much of Telemann sits well with the fingers. I love playing his work … and I love listening as well!

(In case you haven’t seen them, “Live Music Is Best” bumper stickers used to be popular. I don’t know that I’ve seen any recently.)

The Dallas Symphony Orchestra will perform the National Anthem before the nationally telecast Thanksgiving Day game between the Dallas Cowboys and the Washington Redskins. Except it won’t, really.

Some 45 members of the orchestra will be on the field, with music director Jaap van Zweden conducting. But they’ll only be miming the music, while the sound system will blast out a recording of the full orchestra, made Thursday morning at the Meyerson Symphony Center. Singer Ann Wilson, however, will be “live,” syncing with the recording.

“We don’t like to advertise that fact,” said Cowboys’ executive producer Matt Coy. “But with 45 members of the orchestra it’s going to be difficult to do it live.”

Well, at least the musicians are alive. Right?

I tried playing the game for a while … just not my cuppa. (I like Scrabble in case any of you want to play a game or two … or three ….) I never had the sound on, so I don’t recognize this tune at all. You?

Hmmm. Not sure this is gonna change my life. It’s also rather painful to listen to. So I guess I’ll share it with readers. ;-)
