Edinburgh Military Tattoo


IMG_2553

Edinburgh Military Tattoo is an annual show at Edinburgh International Festival (Fringe Festival) in August. Quoting from their site “Taking place on the esplanade of Edinburgh’s iconic Castle, expect an unforgettable evening of music, ceremony, theater and dance” it was indeed unforgettable evening. Not because the cold, wind, and rain that night but the performances is topnotch.

Edinburgh Military Tattoo is a collaboration of many countries; Scotland, England, America, China, India, and many more (I don’t really remember all of it :-p). The performances mostly a dance and music, well some of them are military so they “dance” on their own way. I personally like Chinese performance, Lotus Dragon Dance. They start with just a Lotus flowers and suddenly there are dragons, I’m like “where that dragons come from”.

When watching some of the military people, I found something interesting, I found blonde performer. Well, there are lots of blonde performers but not that blonde, just check my photo below.

At the end of the performances there are couple of fireworks display. It was beautiful although I had seen it like almost everyday because I live near the castle.

My First Recital with ITB Students Orchestra


Resital yang bertajuk Movimento : Radiance of Melodies yang diselenggarakan di Theater Tertutup Dago Tea House kemarin malam (29 Januari 2011) adalah resital pertama kali saya dimana saya juga menjadi salah satu pengisinya ^_^. Memang sebelum-sebelumnya saya sudah sering menjadi panitia dalam acara-acara ISO baik resital maupun konser tapi baru kali ini berkesempatan menjadi pengisi acaranya alias pemainnya. Walaupun saya hanya bermain dalam format ensembel (30 orang gitaris) tapi saya tetap merasa senang dengan hal itu. Saya jadi teringat dengan kata-kata salah satu teman saya yang intinya, hasil yang memuaskan tidak hanya didapat jika kita berhasil sukses di acaranya tetapi bagaimana proses yang kita lalui entah itu selama mempersiapkan acaranya atau berlatih siang malam bersama teman-teman lainnya.

Semoga dengan suksesnya acara ini dapat memberi efek positif terhadap masyarakat umum maupun ITB sehingga acara-acara selanjutnya dapat tersukseskan juga. Untuk selanjutnya selamat bekerja untuk panitia KOnser ISO pada bulan April 2011, semoga mendapat pandangan positif dan sukses juga, tak lupa semoga saya bisa main juga (Amin ^_^).
