So part two of West Coast Classics co-hosting on Wednesday Mar 25 was pretty wicked as was the other one that I did.

All three hours worth!
The show kept up its glory. I realized Kerry prefers calling it the Beethoven 9 show. Which I find more fitting anyways. I won’t go into too much detail with all the pieces that we played and listened to just because ironically, I feel like that was my least significant experience.
Actually, what I really enjoyed about part 2 of the radio journey was how emotionally intense it got. It gave me a completely new outlook on what classical music has to offer. I don’t know how else to put it, into words or not, everything about this experience opened me up to a new insight into what makes music, music.
I cannot stress how genuine, how real and moving this is, what it means for someone to put all of their purpose, meaning and ideas into a piece of work written for years and then never play it again. (Something that I learned while doing this is that back in the day most classical music was only played once)
That one performance means everything and that is an excellent demonstration of purity and honesty in art, something that I am always on the hunt for.
