Clay Aiken -…Simply A Thing Of Beauty

September brings back-to-school season and summer’s end, but it is also a month full of many unusual things to celebrate. I think the following are rather “interesting” celebrations!

  • Hispanic Heritage Month
  • Fall Hat Month
  • International Square Dancing Month
  • National Blueberry Popsicle Month
  • National Courtesy Month
  • National Piano Month
  • Chicken Month
  • Baby Safety Month
  • Little League Month
  • Honey Month
  • Self Improvement Month
  • Better Breakfast Month

For those of us on a Clay Aiken blog, the important cause is:

Classical Music Month

Many of us enjoy classical music, but when asked by someone, “What is classical music?” we are unable to provide a solid statement about this genre that encompasses many styles of music and spans more than seven hundred years.

The following are some definitions of and comments about Classical Music:

  • Orchestral and chamber music, etc, as opposed to jazz, folk music, etc.
  • Classical Music is the joy of being involved with something larger than you are.
  • The best thing about being a musician is carrying around works of art in your head all the time.
  • Lovers of classical music speak of it as a refuge from the stress of everyday life, a sanctuary of timeless treasures.
  • The musician, A. Ansbacher said: Classical music for me is simply a thing of beauty…that everybody should have the opportunity to enjoy.

Whatever your favorite genre of music might be it is wonderful that the month of September celebrates music. Having grown up in a home where classical music was all I ever heard, I love listening to Brahms, Mahler, Mozart and many other great composers. Yet, when I heard Clay Aiken sing the first time, my heart soared and life was just a little bit better than the day before.

  2. Thank you for the pictures and video. I remember when PBS showed this concert on TV. i watch it as many times as the TV channel showed it. It must have been a OMG moment to be there. I have listed to many kinds of music. Unchained Melody is one of my favorite songs. To have Clay singing that song at that time is a OMG moment. Thank you CANN for sharing.
