Albuquerque River of Lights – Videos

Some more pictures of the lights with some videos of the Carolers and the Albuquerque Symphony that I uploaded to YouTube. I am very impressed with the sound quality of my Canon PowerShot S5IS. For just a “prosumer” point and shoot SLR like camera not a true SLR or a video camera the sound and picture of these is outstanding.

At the time I got it, it was one of the only digital cameras that also had stereo sound. The two microphones are about an inch and a half apart though, I dont know how much “stereo” you can get with that. Having said that these of the orchestra especially sound great. Check em out and let me know what you think.

Some members of the Albuquerque Symphony showed up to play for us. They played on for maybe an hour or two longer after these and I would have liked to have gotten some additional songs, but silly me left my spare batteries in my suit jacket at home from the company Xmas party.
Some of the animated displays and the fountains were sound activated which was also very cool to see the water dancing to the sound of the orchestra.
Albuquerque Symphony – Polar Express:
I swear the xylophone player looks just like my boss, hes very animated in the one above. I thought it was hilarious and it was all I could do to not to laugh and have it come out in the video LOL
The conductor said who wrote this piece and what it was called, but I have a bad memory and forgot before we got home. If you know what this is let me know in the comments. Its a string of clips from many Xmas songs strung together.
Little ones enchanted by the music too.
Carolers and the Symphony started at about the same time so we only got to see the tail end of the singing.
Heres how it looked after a bit of rain and most of the people gone.

And some more random pictures that wouldnt fit in the other post.

Getting a hug from Frostie!

Bye for now
