Symphony is a treat, but let’s see the hands

OlympiaMay 5, 2014 

The recent Olympia Symphony program was an (almost) perfect treat for the senses on a Sunday evening. The Prokofiev piano concerto and Brahms symphony are exciting pieces to watch the orchestra perform, or to simply close your eyes and go where the music takes you.

Watching an extraordinary artist such as pianist Brenda Miller is frosting on the cake. But, wouldn’t it be something if one could actually see her hands as she plays? A small minicam aimed at the keyboard and a large video screen mounted on the back of the stage could enhance the experience immeasurably.

I’ll buy the hardware, if someone will install it.
