Practice Makes Perfect

Practice, Practice

There is an old saying regarding Carnegie Hall…How do you get to Carnegie Hall? Well you get the idea. It’s funny really because I heard the same line in Barcelona regarding the Palau de la Música Catalana. Perhaps it was said by another tourist from the states, or maybe that sentiment is ubiquitous in all the great concert halls of the world. Everyone needs their 10,000 hours. Truly the worlds greatest performers are, not surprisingly, some of the worlds greatest practitioners of practice. Below is the practice hall of the Orfeó Català. The practice hall is the same size and shape of the main hall, though one has to wonder with a hall as beautiful as the Palau, why would you ever want to practice anywhere else.
