Evan Plays Abbey Road

Sunday, Evan and I got quite a treat — we went to a scoring session at Abbey Road Studios, the famed studio where The Beatles recorded, and got to watch a 96-piece orchestra recording. We got to sit on a little balcony overlooking the room, and I was surprised to see some instruments I’d never seen before — most notably, two large brass instruments that looked like variations on a tuba and a trombone. I didn’t get any photos of them, though.

Watching the orchestra made me a bit nostalgic for my time playing in the band and orchestra in middle school and high school. But the highlight of the day was that Evan got to test out the huge Steinway while the orchestra was on break. He gave a concert for quite a few onlookers and impressed them all with his musical talents.
