On the evening of Wednesday, March 30, 2011, a group of people attended a sold-out concert that took place at the Weill Recital Hall at the world-renowned Carnegie Hall. A piano’s beautiful tune and harmonious melody merrily made its way into people’s hearts.
   This particular event was the Seventh Annual Notable Occasion. The Carnegie Hall Notables is a membership and ticket programme for music devotees which offers an opportunity for a young crowd (aged 20s to 30s) to embrace music with open arms.
   Attendees, sophisticated and elegantly dressed to impress, eagerly waited for the evening to commence. As people filled the beautiful venue, wonderfully lit with spectacular crystal chandeliers hanging from the high ceilings, they prepared to set themselves in an amazing music-filled atmosphere. The scene was intimate and personal, a perfect occasion for family, friends as well as guests to celebrate one main aspect they all have in common: music’s eternal splendour.
   Nicola Bulgari was the underwriter and host of the event, presenting the musician of the night, who successfully conquered the stage with his flair and musical vibe.
   Alexander Romanovsky, a young, talented pianist, took centre-stage as he performed works by three major composers: Johannes Brahms, Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky and Sergei Vasilievich Rachmaninoff. The sixty-minute performance captured the audience’s spirits: they virtually drifted away as the sound vividly echoed into their ears. Romanovsky expressed a great deal of emotions as he carefully played away.
   The young Ukrainian musician, born in 1984, is a virtuoso who has internationally shared his talent with audiences around the world, constantly travelling and reaching to people’s musical interests.
   As the concert came to an end, the celebration was just beginning. The audience made their way from the Weill Recital Hall to Brasserie Cognac where people merrily interacted with each other with a cocktail in hand and des petits hors d’œuvres magnificently set. Still sticking to the musical theme, Genghis Barbie, an all female group of horn players, captured the ambiance as they played live music.
   As the very well organized and successful evening came to a sudden end, people took along with them an everlasting and an unforgettable musical experience, a souvenir to forever be remembered. Although the night passed in a blink of an eye, attendees enthusiastically look forward to the Eighth Annual Notable Occasion next year, that will similarly provide them with an evening filled with a joyful and an upbeat musical setting.—Lola Saab, Paris Editor
