It’s concerts-in-the-park time here on the West Island! And, finally, one is actually IN the park!
I pedaled down to Beaconsfield’s Centennial Park last night to check out the music of The Centennial Band (put together for just this occasion). They played a string of 30’s and early 40’s hits of the Big Band era–String of Pearls, Sing! Sing! Sing!, In The Mood, etc. A 15-piece combo of local musicians who did a fantastic job on these songs. Well done, Beaconsfield!
Below: Me and my sketchbook. I was just getting started.
Below: The actual sketch. I was getting frustrated as things just wouldn’t translate as I wanted them to on the paper. Bah!
Below: A brief video to share. They sound good, hmmm? As you can see, it was a hot evening, what with the fans.
So I hope this encourages you to get out and enjoy the summer days/evenings! Do some sketching, picture taking–whatever helps you to document the moment!
