Colin Recommends the following:
Movie “To Kill A Mockingbird” “Gregory Peck is brilliant. It’s a classic”
You Tube: “Catcerto” http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zeoT66v4EHg
A piece of music to listen to: “Schubert’s Quintet in C major for two celli, viola and two violins, Op.163 is a piece with big scope. And the choice to add a cello really gives a unique quality to the soundscape.”
Event: “Lime Rock Vintage Festival” Vintage Car Racing “You can walk around the pits, look at the cars, talk to people, get up close and personal, just like with Decompression Chamber Music. You can be transported back in time, watching these cars race around the track.”
