This evening we had the pleasure of attending the first performance in North America of Benjamin Britten’s Temporal Variations for Oboe & Strings. It was performed by the Greater Grand Forks Symphony, with Philip McKenzie on oboe. Philip is the boy friend of a long time girl friend of my wife.

Stay tuned for the video tomorrow, apparently the satellite bandwidth is going to take a very long time to upload 21 minutes of hi-def video….

And now finally the video, rather dark due to the small lens and minimal ambient light in the church.
