    I go to the Bovard Auditorium (Thornton School of Music -- USC) to listen to Mozart and Beethoven concertos, sonatas, and even symphonies (albeit, it's rare you catch a full symphony there from Beethoven, it's mostly broken down) every once in a while. In adition to many others. I used to go to a lot more, but have slowed it down to about once or twice a year, now. The oboe is my favorite instrument.

    I was big in baroque (Vivaldi, Bach) when I studied music history and theory. I adore a new'ish' genre of music called Baroque Pop, Jobber, that implements the harpsichord into indie pop/folk. It's really fun

    You lost me. I'm learning Old Man on the guitar and Ode to Joy on the piano......slowly lately. Used to read music and relearning but no theory. My interests are eclectic but I love it all esp some opera. I sing and listen every day I can.

    I adore electric. Adore it, Jobber. Without hijacking this thread further, it's one of my favorite genres. Most music afficianados I know, to include those with doctorates, adore the genre, and more so, have learned it. It's truly impressive and amazing. Good stuff.

    I like Opera, but usually prefer Operettas. You would adore USC's Bovard, Doc!

    Ode to Joy. Good stuff, Doc!!!!

    Beginners stuff but I'm reintroducing myself back to music after 50 years. It's a perishable skill. We have a Roland piano and I have a basic Fender A/E guitar to learn on. We''ll get a Yamaha Baby at some point and I'll have a custom A/E or Martin etc and a Fender Strat if I keep it up. That's if we don't go sailing for awhile.
