Fly Me To The Moon (With a Ukulele)

 

And so Terry the Tenor Ukulele and I have joined the countless number of people and ukuleles who have uploaded countless covers of this classic on YouTube.

In a small corner of the universe, may we find a moon big enough to hold all our hopes and dreams, and near enough so that we need not wait too long to fly there.

Concerto

 

Of all orchestral genres, the Concerto is one of my favourites.

Listening to the soloist(s) soar virtuosically above the luscious strings, bright brass, deep bass and mellow woodwinds,

Somehow stirs up various emotions within me.

Like…

It is possible for a gentle soul to counter the boisterous obstacles of life.

It is possible for a lone voice to stand out, yet blend in with the intricate masses and layers of existence.

It is possible for a single fighter to make their stand, yet compromise when necessary, to create something as sublime and as soul-stirring as the Concerto.

 

It is possible.
