@Strathmore With Violin Virtuoso Zoltan Maga

Nice time today at Strathmore Concert Hall. 

Listened to beautiful music by Violin Virtuoso Zoltan Maga and The Budapest Gypsy Orchestra.

Zoltan was amazing and he played the violin with expertise that I have rarely seen in my life.

It was as of the violin literally came alive in his hands.

His son, Zoltan, Jr. also played wonderfully and seems to be a “chip off the old block.”

I was pleasantly surprised to hear Zoltan and the orchestra play a pretty mean Hava Nagillah!

Also, the Hungarian Ambassador was there to welcome Zoltan. 

It was beautiful at the end when they told how Zoltan does many charity concerts and donates hundreds of thousands of dollars to needy orphan homes. 

I shook Zoltan’s hand, but I could tell he was very protective of his magic hands.

Truly, he is a master and you can see the skill from Hashem in him–it was amazing. 😉

Song and Dance in Ft. Lauderdale

Ft. Lauderdale is not quiet and conservative this time of year.

Between Passover, Easter, Spring Break, and the end of the snowbird season–the beach, restaurants, stores, and streets were quite lively.

This one restaurant had some nice entertainment with this guy playing guitar and this lady belly dancing and handling a sword and handkerchief–yeah, don’t ask.

At the end of the 2nd video, this weird guy in a large orange cowboy hat sort of just shows up–unfortunately, the cameraman (me) was having some technical difficulty focusing the smartphone. 😉
