Jacobs Masterworks

The intermission was classical enough that I found it catchier than any other classical performance I have attended so far. It was not hard for me to find fun, neither did the team have to do too much to catch my attention and get me entertained. However, through the orchestrations, I was expectant of the intermission moment, when Morton Gould would take over and make my night. Little did he disappoint, as he gave his best on the pieces. I could feel; every word of the lead, while the soprano was loud and ear-catching. This was the moment of my night, and I felt I had made the right decision. There was no better way to forget my whole week’s tiredness and trouble than in a classical orchestra hall with violins and voices sounding that sweet. Indeed, I felt I like jumping on stage and joining in the lead, as In the Cave was playing. I have always loved the song, and every performance that I attend and the song get played, I lose myself to the words and the strings of the guitar. Having been slated as the lead song on the intermission, there was no better way to have me on the performance too, one that I performed for myself. However, this lively mood was cut short by Song of a Broken Heart, which was next. Of course, I have memorized the whole program and knew which song would come next. But I had totally forgotten that this would be the next song on the list. I wished it would have come much later, or even earlier too. In particular, I did not hate the performance but had a personal

But I had totally forgotten that this would be the next song in the list. I wished it would have come much later, or even earlier too. In particular, I did not hate the performance, but had a personal attachment to the song. Song of a broken heart reminded me of a time when I was heartbroken. This classic reminded me of every episode that went through over the entire period. But I was over that, and so, to crown my efforts of having had the strength to move on and forget the past, I sang along to the song, and felt relieved. Gould work, having been written in 1969 and unheard in concert halls of San Diego since then, was equally entertaining to the audience as to the performers. The song was written for the founding father of San Diego during the 200 anniversary. This reminded part of the history of my country. At this moment, I realized how great it is to be a patriot of my country. An old man, who occupied the space next to me, narrated a brief history of the first time the song
