      I recognized most of the music, even though I may not know the correct title of each composition.  (I just wonder how many listeners identified the main theme from the William Tell Overture as "the theme from the Lone Ranger TV show?") 

       

      It must have been tedium in overdrive adjusting the tone of those glasses and goblets by adding and removing water!

       

      Have fun, David Meashey

      They are or were closed because of COVID, so why not do something to make the time go by! Very well planned and executed. Wonder if they brought in piano tuners to get the tones right for each of the notes

      I wonder how long all those glasses stay in tune before evaporation messes things up?

      One of MANY reasons that so few of us attempt this.

      I heard that they topped off the water with a small amount of oil, which prevent the water from evaporating (or at least slowed the evaporation).
