Miami Beach is a lot hotter than up North, which I am still getting used to. Between seeing friends at the beach and practicing my violin with my favorite violinist, I got to attend a lot of the events that were part of the Miami Summer Music Festival this summer. This weekend I went to Cendrillon (by Jules Massenet, conductor: Grzegorz Nowak) and Don Giovanni (by W. A. Mozart), I loved them both. I love the atmosphere at big musical events, you don't see many people talking on cellphones, like you do on the street. Everyone is surrounded by music and the joy it brings.
