Last night was another open house at the big glamorous Overture Center here in Madison. Here's how the inside of the dome looks at night:
Here is how our beautiful Capitol dome is framed in the immense windows of the Overture Center:
Here's a glimpse of the complex interior paths of the Center:
Last night, there was a big concert (Dave Brubeck) in the big Overture Hall. We did not have tickets, so we couldn't check out the Hall. It's said to have fabulous acoustics. I hope so. We stopped in to two free concerts that played in two of the smaller performance spaces. Later, a salsa band played in the cavernous lobby area. Lots of townsfolk were there, and plenty of people danced happily.
Even though none of the music I heard was the kind of music I like, I enjoyed seeing the community gathering in a beautiful space. I especially love the grand tradition of everyone coming to a big dance, which is the way human beings have enjoyed the gift of life for millennia.
