On the first day of snow (today 17 December 2009), we rushed outside to take pictures and videos while it was still fresh and clean in the morning. It’s so exciting to see and feel the snow, as though it’s come to wish us a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
We’d like to send a different kind of “season’s greetings” — unlike the two page newsletter that took several days to put together last year. Of course, we could also add hyperlinks to milestones and other important news we’d like to share. And indeed we’d like to tell you about our music, our travels and our guests who visited us.
But here is something spontaneous — a peek into our family life in Utrecht, Netherlands.
We live in a 100-year old Dutch monument house next to a lock that is rarely used. We spend a lot of time making music: practising, rehearsing, performing, singing, analysing, teaching, arranging, composing, attending, reviewing, and producing concerts —- hence this CONCERTBLOG.
When we’re not making music, we do fitness at the sports club on the other side of the canal (pictured in the video clips) or have fun with our friends, many of whom live abroad (hence the need for an electronic, interactive season’s greetings).
Think of this blog as a multiple choice question. Which video is the best to use and why? Please use the LEAVE A REPLY box below.

E- All of the above
F- None of the above – why not?
