Tokyo Cathedral 4

Posted by scottshaw on June 10, 2006

The Tokyo Cathedral recital is over, and I am fairly pleased with the results. The attendance was good, and I managed to concentrate and enjoy performing (for the most part). Unfortunately for me my upcoming recitals don't take place in comparably stunning venues. (To see a list of upcoming venues click on the organ tab to the right).

What does one do to purge the stress of performing? Go cycling, of course. (I suppose you thought the answer would be "go drinking.") Today I headed up to Hikarigaoka Park, a huge wooded area set between large apartment blocks. It appears to have been a planned development, with differing types of parks appearing between the buildings. 25 km of cycling, coffee in the park, and refreshment is yours!

東京カテドラルのリサイタルが無事に終わりました。演奏している間比較的リラックス出来ましたので、オルガンの美しい音色を楽しみながら弾きました。問題は今後弾く所はカテドラルほどの残響がないこと。(今後の演奏スケジュールを見たい方:右のオルガンリサイタルタブをクリックしてください)。

さて、どうやって演奏会のストレスをなくすでしょうか?もちろんサイクリングに出かけることです。(飲みに行くのもオプションでしょうが…) 今日練馬区にある光が丘公園に行ってきました。サイクリング+緑の中でコーヒーいっぱい飲む事=レフレッシュ!
